Abstract
The Tactical Vehicle System Section (TVSS) of Defence R&D Canada-Suffield (DRDC-Suffield) conducts research to exploit the potential of Unmanned Ground Vehicles (UGVs) for increasing soldier survivability and mobility. UGV mobility is one area of concern. Intelligent mobility describes the ability of an unmanned ground vehicle to traverse unstructured, obstacle-ridden terrain successfully with limited or less discriminating perception and simplified control. This paper provides an assessment of the intelligent mobility of an emerging concept compared to four previous UGV platforms developed for/by DRDC Suffield. It describes the SAAS (Solid Axle Ackerman Steered) UGV concept in terms of its hardware configuration, control hardware requirements, and attendant mobility performance. The SAAS will exhibit superior performance for UGV operations and roles.
