robotics vehicle design development


Robotic vehicles are machines that move “autonomously” on the ground, in the air, undersea, or in space. Such vehicles are “unmanned,” in the sense that no humans are on board. In general, these vehicles move by themselves, under their own power, with sensors and computational resources onboard to guide their motion. However, such “unmanned” robotic vehicles usually integrate some form of human oversight or supervision of the motion and task execution. Such oversight may take different forms, depending on the environment and application. It is common to utilize so-called “supervisory control” for high-level observation and monitoring of vehicle motion. In other instances, an interface is provided for more continuous human input constituting a “remotely operated vehicle,” or ROV. In this case, the ROV is often linked by cable or wireless communications in order to provide higher bandwidth communications of operator input. In the evolution of robotic vehicle technology that has been observed in this study, it is clear that a higher level of autonomy is an important trend of emerging technologies, and the ROV mode of operation is gradually being replaced by supervisory control of autonomous operations.
