Hierarchical Architecture for Coordinating Ground Vehicles in Unstructured Environments

Published

Author(s)

Alberto Lacaze

Abstract

This article presents a hierarchy of planners that can be used to coordinate multiple autonomous vehicles for different applications. The particular architecture reduces complexity and creates a constrained representation that in turn generates a wide variety of complex behaviors. A particular set of examples for the US Army's Demo III project will be presented.
