Robotics Technology Kernel for Radiation Sensing and Site Exploitation
This paper details the design and operational prototype of a small unmanned ground vehicle capable of site exploitation and radiation sensing in an indoor, GPS-denied environment. By leveraging the Robotics Technology Kernel and Android Tactical Assault Kit, users and researchers can reduce non-recurring engineering costs associated with autonomous sensing and navigation algorithm development, testing, integration, and reuse. This paper presents recent test results of the system and its sensors using the proposed hardware and software infrastructure connecting back to an end user device.
