Abstract:

In the first part of this project, in 2008, large amounts of synchronised data were gathered from a representative UGV platform using a wide variety of sensing modalities Fig. 1. These modalities included a visual camera, an infrared IR camera, laser range finders and a mm-wave radar. The data sets were collected from a UGV in the presence of challenging environmental conditions such as the presence of airborne dust, smoke, rain. The collected data were then published, and are now extensively used for the developments of this new project. The general objective is to better understand and promote integrity and dependability of perceptual systems for unmanned ground vehicle UGV systems, to provide them with the ability to achieve long-term autonomous operations in off-road environments, including and in particular in challenging conditions.
