Trajectories generation from enriched digital maps for autonomous forestry navigation vehicles

Experiment objective

The experiment aims to bring a robotic vehicle to the next level though the incorporation of digital technologies for its autonomous navigation in difficult environments. Specifically, the experiment will consider forestry areas where the robot carries out important activities such as clearing, weeding and maintenance to reduce fire generation and vehicle accidents.

Thus, the experiment will develop an intelligent tasks and trajectory planning system for robotic vehicles. This system will plan the movement of the robotic vehicle, taking into account the possible external disturbances such as the appearance of fixed and mobile obstacles, the unexpected sliding of the vehicle due to the inclination and/or slippery state of the ground, or the loss of support in one of the chains of the vehicle.

Implementation Solution

The work plan consists of three technical work packages (WP) and a WP associated with dissemination and exploitation of the project. In WP1, the conceptual design and detailed design of the system elements will be carried out. In WP2, the functions of each component will be implemented, and adjustment tests will be carried out to obtain a satisfactory operation. In WP3, tests for the validation of the complete system and measurements for the evaluation of its performance will be carried out.

WP4 focuses on project management and dissemination and exploitation of the results of the experiment. It lasts the whole duration of the experiment.
