Abstract
Defence R&D Canada Suffield (DRDC Suffield) conducts research in UGV intelligence for mobility in complex terrain. The research methodology addresses the numerous challenges and uncertainties that complicate the design of UGV systems. Researchers at DRDC Suffield attempt to conduct research that addresses the large complex space of relevant military UGVs. The intent is not in the design of optimal robots for specific missions, but rather to allow research to occur in the many areas of mobility. High degreeof- freedom UGVs are one area researchers are considering. These systems that start to mirror biological system complexity result in an expectation of animal like performance. However, biological system performance creates ever increasing control complexity for the system. Research in this area is being addressed using the 12 degree-of-freedom hybrid legged/wheeled Micro Hydraulics Toolkit (MHT).
