This paper discusses the hardware and software of a robot-assisted vehicle inspection system - describing, among other
things, the inverse-kinematics and special trajectory and "corridor" control needs of the application, plus the
coordination of mobile base and robotic arm control. Typical target vehicles are illustrated and task sequencing
presented which drives a high level of surveillance and analysis coverage of the vehicle. There are many activities going
on all at once during the surveillance sweep of a vehicle, all of which must be and are easily accessible for control and
monitoring from a simple uncluttered operational console and dashboard.
