Standard Radio CommunicationTest Method for Mobile Ground Robots



Kate Remley, Galen H. Koepke


This paper describes a proposed standard method for conducting a performance evaluation of wireless communications links used for the control and telemetry systems on mobile ground robots. Range performance metrics are determined under open line-of-sight (LOS) and simple obstructed non-line-of-sight (NLOS) conditions. The method was demonstrated as part of the annual Response Robot Evaluation Exercise at the Texas A&M University Riverside Campus during November 2008 where it was used to compare range performance of several advanced radio systems.
