Two Cargo UGVs in shadow autonomy mode follow a lead vehicle.



UGV with flying eye
Multi-Vehicle Coordination

NREC was the first to leverge the overhead sensing provided by an autonomous UAV to improve UGV navigation effectiveness in complex, cross country terrain.

We have demonstrated market-based collaborative behavior algorithms in which unmanned systems trade off tasks to accomplish a group mission such as area reconnaissance, distributed search, and perimeter guarding while minimizing overall resources. These algorithms have been deployed on teams of multiple vehicle types.
