Abstract

In case of a national mobilization, the Army needs a technique to construct training facilities rapidly without using a large pool of skilled labor. This can be achieved by borrowing robot technology used to increase productivity in manufacturing. However, most construction activities require mobility. This report contains a list of requirements for mobile robot sensor and guidance systems for mobilization construction. An evaluation of the current state of the art in mobile robot sensor and guidance systems is included. The report then looks at the feasibility of integrating current components to form a practical sensor and guidance system for mobile construction robots. Finally, the report makes recommedations for basic research needed in this area.
