The ability for an operator to remotely manipulate and control an Unmanned System from a safe location through a cable tether or radio link is the most mature control technology available and therefore is an area of emphasis. Teleoperation capabilities are essential to the user because they enable standoff operations and thereby reduce or remove operator risks in highly stressful and dangerous environments.
On an ACTIVEROBOTICX Unmanned System, various sensors such as Cameras, Global Positioning System (GPS), LIDAR, ultrasonic range finder, digital compass, motion sensor, infrared sensor are installed on the UGV for the operator to better understand the environment, location,
orientation, and behaviour of the system. The data is presented in a Graphical User Interface (GUI) for the operator who controls the Unmanned System. Electronics modules are used to implement
the wireless communication and, provide a reliable connection from the UGV to the remotely located operator.
