The paper presents the results of cooperative work done by three different research institutions. The cooperation concluded in a large field experiment with six heterogeneous unmanned ground vehicles (UGVs) and unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs). It is shown, that it is possible to do reconnaissance and surveillance, namely detection of pedestrians and(More)
Multi-Robot Systems have become an important research topic. One of the main questions, when looking at usability of a MRS, is how it can be controlled. In this paper we describe an approach were the commanding is done by using an artificial language very similar to English, the Battle Management Language (BML). The orders can thus be created intuitively(More)
This paper presents technical details of the robot framework that is used by the FKIE team for the participation in the three scenarios Mule, Approach, and Camp Security of the ELROB 2011. Our navigation software used for both, the Mule and the Approach scenario, is based on a local navigation using motion patterns. Additionally, we employ a FastSLAM mapper(More)
Multi-robot systems, i.e. groups of mobile robots which carry out complex tasks cooperatively, are becoming increasingly important in robotics research. For many applications, like exploration or search and rescue missions, multi-robot systems have great advantages over single robot solutions. Besides their ability to fulfill missions faster, multi-robot(More)
The battlefield scenarios are changing around the world presenting new challenges for the military. Battlefield environments have moved from the open to urban and constricted spaces forcing the military to adopt new doctrines and tactics for effective attack and defence. Whilst there have been many advances at the equipment level to support the ground(More)
