Paper Abstract

This paper looks at the mobility issues of Unmanned Ground Vehicles (UGV). The different mobility types and novel developments used on UGV's are reviewed and reasons why they have been chosen, as well as the need for incorporated systems in modern commercial vehicles which are required to control vehicular locomotion in order to make driving over certain ground types successful and efficient. Our current research into using innovative solutions to improve UGV mobility by creating a dynamic reconfigurable system that can adapt to situational changes is highlighted. This concept will give the vehicle the ability to be able to cope with potentially any task in any condition whether known or unknown, ultimately creating a system that can take more risks and have fewer limitations on its uses.
