Abstract
Defence R&D Canada is extending its experience in teleoperated ground vehicles to the development of autonomous systems for the Canadian Forces. The Autonomous Intelligent Systems Section develops novel robotic platforms that autonomously generate useful locomotive behaviours. This paper is the outcome of two years of development effort combined with a two-year R&D contract. It summarizes the characteristics and architecture of the Shape-shifting Tracked Robotic Vehicle (STRV) demonstrating variable geometry abilities to adapt and traverse complex terrain.
