Paper Abstract

The Defence R&D Canada (DRDC) has been given strategic direction to pursue research to increase the independence and effectiveness of military vehicles and systems. This led to the creation of the Autonomous Land Systems (ALS) project that was completed in 2005 with a successful demonstration of semi-autonomous UGVs in open partially vegetated environments. Cohort is a newly funded project that will work to devleop effective UxV teams for urban and complex environments. This paper will briefly discuss the state of the UGV research at the completion of ALS and other research projects supporting Cohort. The goals and challenges of Cohort will be outlined as well as the research plan that is involving many of DRDC's laboratories from across Canada.
