Abstract

This paper describes an autonomous Intelligent Controller (IC) architecture directly applicable to the design of unmanned autonomous vehicles. These vehicles may operate independently or cooperate to carry out complex missions involving disparate sensors or payload packages. The IC technology has been demonstrated in prototype designs of actual, autonomous, unmanned, intelligently controlled vehicles. A collaborative control demonstration will be provided as part of the paper presentation. An approach to measure the gains associated with collaborative control is also presented and simulation scenarios are provided to demonstrate the gains attainable.
