Paper Abstract

A goal of the Surrogate Semi-Autonomous Vehicle (SSV) program is to have multiple vehicles navigate autonomously as well as cooperatively with other vehicles. In this paper, we address the steps to develop the vehicle hardware. The vehicle selected is the military High Mobility Multipurpose Wheeled Vehicle (HMMWV) and the image bus selected can handle greater than 30 MB per second of image data. The laser scanner we will be using will have a look-ahead distance of greater than 30 m and we have started work on the vibration isolation system and ways to correct image sensor position instability.
