Robotic Vehicle Control System
The system can be used to convert conventional tactical vehicles into
hybrid (manned/unmanned) robotic platforms. Manned vehicles equipped
with Smover can be used as unmanned reconnaissance or weapons platform, for
example, in minefield breaching or recovering vehicles under fire.
Equipped with Smover, a lead element of a convoy
can be driven remotely
without being visibly distinctive from the rest of the convoy vehicles.
The vehicle can be remotely controlled or use autarkic drives, moving
along predetermined routes, negotiating obstacles by automatic
recognition etc. Smover technology was implemented in the 8x8
multi-mission Trobot (Tactical robot, shown above), which can be used as a load
carrier, weapon platform or recce vehicle. Other applications range from
NBC sensor to a field MEDEVAC platform and more.
