A Surveillance system with Multiple Unmanned Ground Vehicles (UGVs)



Abstract / Description

This video summarises work done at the Mechatronics group at the University of New South Wales. Two main contributions are highlighted. The first, a distributed communications and processing module which enables integration of a wide range of sensors. Secondly, a team of UGVs, each of which provides a remote operator with sufficiently good situational awareness that the UGV can be driven from the other side of the world using the Internet. In addition, the UGVs are capable of reducing the human workload to simply suggesting a destination and the robot will autonomously calculate a path to that destination and execute it in real-time. At the same time, a dense 3D map of the robot's environment is calculated.
