Paper Abstract

A robotic convoy consists of a lead vehicle and following vehicles. The lead vehicle is either manually driven or driven through teleoperation from a fixed base station or a mobile base station located in one of the convoy followers. The lead vehicle automatically maps the path it is driving using integrated global and local sensing and navigation systems, and transmits this information back to the following vehicles. The following vehicles use their own sensing, without human intervention, to follow the same path as the lead vehicle. This paper will discuss the technologies involved in robotic convoy, the capabilities achieved with this technology and future applications involving robotic convoy.
