Paper Abstract

A goal of the Surrogate Semi-Autonomous Vehicle (SSV) program is to have multiple vehicles navigate autonomously and cooperatively with other vehicles. In this paper we address the steps to develop the global navigation system (GNS) for the SSV. We also discuss GNS components, specifications, and requirements for meeting SSV system needs. The development process, results, lessons learned, and remaining issues are discussed. We selected a low-cost solution because no available integrated global positioning system/inertial navigation system (GPS/INS) existed at the time of selection.
