Autonomous Navigation in Challenging Environments (ANCE)
It is proposed to develop and demonstrate safe navigation in challenging environments, using an autonomous vehicle, capable of navigating in challenging outdoor and off-road environments at high speeds. Existing state-of-the-art algorithms for 3D mapping, perception, navigation, and planning in static and dynamic environments, will be integrated on an experimental platform and evaluated in several challenging real-life scenarios typical of search and rescue operations.
