Augmentation and Continuation of the Application of Intelligent Automata to Reconnaissance

by Rosen, C. A. and Nilsson, N. J.

April 1967.

Note: SRI Proposal ESU 67-36. Leads to project 7494

Abstract

The long-range goal of this program will be to develop intelligent automata capable of gathering, processing, and transmitting information in a hostile environment. The time period involved is 1970-1980. The short-range goal will be to design and develop a mobile automaton to accomplish nontrivial missions in a simple environment in a self-contained mode—that is, with little or no human intervention.

Objective

The objectives of this project are the following:
  1. To conduct the necessary theoretical research and to develop the hardware and software to control a mobile automaton in its performance of nontrivial missions in a real environment.
  2. To design, assemble, and test such hardware and software.
  3. To conduct a program of exploratory research using the mobile automaton. The goals of this research will be to test the theoretical concepts developed during the program, to expose key problem areas, and to explore methods of enhancing the performance of the automaton.
