Key Tech Trends in Unmanned Ground Vehicles

The establishment of C2 stations will improve their adoption and integration into operation to enhance commonality and set up swarm capabilities, hence optimizing their market size.

Fremont, CA: Unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) paved the way for UGCs robotics technology to be tested, combat-proven, and adopted by many countries. It provides the required curve for engineers to create the systems and technologies included in them.

Here are six key technologies transforming the unmanned ground vehicles (UGVs) environment:

Artificial Intelligence (AI)

AI will create more correct algorithms that allow a computational device to learn as it processes information like facial recognition, which will be implemented to identify civilians from potential enemies. AI will play a vital role in C2 processes like firing orders and Manned-Unmanned Teaming (MUM-T) in the emergence of robotics in UGVs.

Miniaturization

Miniaturization is an essential factor for the development of unmanned systems and robotics with enhanced capabilities concerning performance. Size, Weight, and Power (SWaP) is an area where industries invest in and will continue to do so in the future.

Platform Agnostic Software and C2 Stations

The establishment of C2 stations will improve their adoption and integration into operation to enhance commonality and set up swarm capabilities, hence optimizing their market size.

Manned-Unmanned Teaming (Mumt)

MUM-T is vital to AI development to enable manned and unmanned systems to operate together, acting as force multipliers and overpowering enemy defenses.

Power

Unmanned ground vehicles (UGVs) need to have enough power resources to operate effectively, use their sensors, and subsystems for long periods, and power the electronic devices carried by soldiers. These systems mostly run on batteries or hybrid-electric engines.

Sensors

Sensors from the relevant market segment can boost robotics' abilities such as sensors’ performance or the full capabilities of unmanned systems in fields like endurance, weight-payload carried, fuel consumption.
