Abstract
The report is a survey of the technologies that are appropriate for inclusion in an autonomous robot capable of fulfilling military engineering tasks. These tasks include: minefield laying; minefield breaching; mine detection; deliberate demolition; and route denial. A significant emphasis was placed on the functional decomposition of the autonomous robot with the various payloads. This emphasis was intentional and was designed to give insight into the full requirements of autonomous robots. The study examines the evolution from a teleoperated mode to fully autonomous mode for one application-deliberate demolition tasks. The use of the SADT format allows one to demonstrate the existence of the various functions at each level of autonomy and the extent of human involvement. The report has covered all aspects of the technology including an examination of the vehicular technology and computer hardware and software technology. TRUNCATED
