27 May 1996 Intersection navigation for unmanned ground vehicles
Author Affiliations +
The level of technology in multiple disciplines that would allow the construction of a vehicle capable of driving itself is near. Several years ago, the US Army recognized a deficiency existed in the image processing technology area and started a research and development program to demonstrate machine vision algorithms needed by unmanned ground vehicles. This technology program has spanned over a 3 year period and has evolved from a laboratory demonstration of the image processing algorithms to designing and developing the hardware necessary to road test the algorithms and access performance. This paper will present a part of this technology effort which implemented intersection detection and navigation using neural net image processing as well as GPS and sensor technology on a military vehicle to demonstrate the feasibility of totally autonomous vehicle navigation.
