AUTOMATIC TERRAIN DETECTION

by David Subert; Andrew Diepen; Kevin Hubert

Abstract

GS Engineering has developed technology to advance the sensory perception of autonomous systems. The Automatic Terrain Detection System (ATDS) is a technology that provides real time terrain detection. Vehicles deployed with ATDS have been able to yield improved mobility, automation of systems, and reduced fuel consumption. ATDS has been integrated into the MK23 MTVR,M1151 HMMWV for the ONR Predictive Adaptive Mobility (PAM) program, and into the Autonomous Ground Re-supply (AGR) by-wire kit for the Oshkosh Defense Palletized Load System (PLS). The ATDS is built upon proven sensors running integrated processing to replace or enhance existing vehicle systems.
