Unmanned Ground Vehicles UGV is a mobile robot capable of autonomous driving, avoiding obstacles, planning to drive paths, identifying road signs, and responding accordingly, and can judge and sense the environment. The platform has indoor and outdoor positioning, and navigation capabilities are based on the open-source ROS system development and provide a wealth of sensor interfaces and API options to facilitate secondary development and integration at a later stage. It aims to complete predetermined tactical or strategic tasks and intelligentsia with intelligent information processing technology and communication technology at its core. Unmanned Ground Vehicles (UGV) can assist combatants or participate in operations independently. The widespread use of unmanned ground vehicles (UGV) in a range of tasks has become an indisputable fact.
