4-D/RCS Version 1.0: A Reference Model Architecture for Demo III
James S. Albus
4-D/RCS is a reference model architecture that provides a theoretical foundation for designing, engineering, integrating, and testing intelligent controllers for unmanned ground vehicle systems. 4-D/RCS integrates the NIST (National Institute of Standards and Technology) RCS Real-time Control System [Albus 96] with the German (Universitaat der Bundeswehr Muenchen) VaMoRs 4-d approach to dynamic machine version [Dickmanns 94]. It draws aspects of the David Sarnoff Laboratory image processing library and VFE hardware and the Army Research Lab computer-aided mission planning system and terrain visualization technology. The 4-D/RCS reference model architecture is intended to facilitate the integration of a wide variety of subsystems from many different sources into the DOD Demo III program.
