Editors: Raj Madhavan, Elena R. Messina and James S. Albus (National Institute of Standards and Technology, USA)
Book Description:
This book presents new research on autonomous mobility capabilities and shows how technological advances can be anticipated in the coming two decades. An indepth description is presented on the theoretical foundations and engnieering approaches that enable these capabilities.
Chapter 1 provides a brief introduction to the 4D/RCS reference model architecture and design methodology that has proven successful in guiding the development of autonomous mobility systems. Chapters 2 through 7 provide more detailed descriptions of research that has been conducted and algorithms that have been developed to implement the various aspects of the 4D/RCS reference model architecture and design methodology. Chapters 8 and 9 discuss applications, performance measures, and standards. Chapter 10 provides a history of Army and DARPA research in autonomous ground mobility. Chapter 11 provides a perspective on the potential future developments in autonomous mobility.
