Abstract
Autonomous unmanned ground vehicles (UGVs) in military roles require a level of oversight and supervision, no matter the level of autonomy assumed. A “Directive Interface” is required to establish the goals for the autonomous system, monitor progress toward those goals, and to receive and interpret the information generated by the system. Components of the operator interface will relate to the supervision and monitoring of the unmanned vehicle, but in a military context, a significant element of the operator role is to merge the operations of the autonomous system into the command and control hierarchy that a military force applies to all units. This paper presents the high level requirements for a directive interface for autonomous UGVs in a military context; focussing on UGVs applied to surveillance roles.
