   Project Description

The TEAMBOTIC project is a project funded under ONR which will develop a new software capability for the reprogrammable, coordinated command and control of teams of autonomous unmanned air and ground vehicles (UAVs/UGVs). This new software capability will allow developers to build and test teams that collaboratively perform tasks - such as reconnaissance and surveillance - with minimal supervision in dynamic, unstructured environments. SRI International has developed an innovative architecture for collaborative autonomous agents and successfully demonstrated collaborative tasking and adaptation for pursuit and evasion scenarios in relatively uncluttered environments. This project will focus on the problems posed by cluttered and hostile urban environments. Our major contribution will be an integrated planning and distributed control architecture in which collective behavior is uniquely adaptive and fault tolerant. Specific areas of research addressed will include (1) novel applications of vision and image analysis for collaborative localization, (2) advances in predictive plan assessment, (3) extensions to a unique desirability-based approach for task and resource menagement and (4) an integrated framework for combining mission planning, localization and communication constraints. We will also incorporate SharedPlans constructs as well as a capability for UCAV’s to reason about communication limitations and the relevance of information.
