Abstract: With the recent progress in the unmanned ground vehicles (UGVs) technologies such as sensors and advanced control systems, the potential of these autonomous vehicles has been greatly improved. Reliability and robustness are two of the major demands for unmanned ground vehicle in particular for the field of combat operations. Accordingly, one challenge is to develop an advanced control system to handle all the nonlinearities inherited in the vehicle subsystems and the harsh environmental conditions. On the other hand, motion planning and perception capabilities for UGVs also need to be improved by using smart sensors and various path planning methods so that UGVs can move safely among obstacles and achieve its desired manoeuvres.
