Scenarios

Non-urban scenario: Surveillance and reconnaissance in non-urban terrain


Terrain:
Non-urban, outdoor, mixed countryside, roads

Task:
Search autonomously (as far as possible) pre-designated area, detect points of interest (static and dynamic), identify, locate and record, report results to judge, if possible return to station in time.

Environment:
The maximum area is not larger than ?00x?00 meters. It may include paved roads, unpaved roads, trails, woods, and off-road areas. Examples of obstacles include ditches, berms, washboard, sandy ground, standing water, fire, rocks and boulders, narrow underpasses, construction equipment, concrete safety rails, power line towers, wire fences and cattle guards. In addition to the existing natural obstacles, the organisers might place obstacles (e.g. equipment) on the route that may disable a vehicle if struck. These obstacles must be detected and circumnavigated by a vehicle to successfully complete the route.

Urban scenario: Situation awareness in urban environment


Terrain:
Urban, both outdoor and indoor

Task:
Drive and explore terrain, gather information about environment, detect building to explore, inspect outside of defined building, if possible enter building, search one room (probably low light and collapsed), report results to judge, if possible return to station in time.

Environment:
The maximum area is no larger than ?00x?00m. It may include paved roads and unpaved roads. Examples of obstacles include ditches, berms, washboard, standing water, fire, boulders, narrow underpasses, construction equipment, concrete safety rails, power line towers, wire fences, and cattle guards. In addition to the existing natural obstacles, the organisers might place obstacles (e.g. equipment) on the route that may disable a vehicle if struck. The buildings may be practically collapsed. These obstacles must be detected and circumnavigated for a vehicle to successfully complete the route.

Combined UGV/UAV scenario for urban and non-urban terrain


Terrain:
Urban, non-urban, outdoor, mixed countryside

Task:
Search autonomously (as far as possible) pre-designated area by UAV, detect and locate points of interest, report results to operator and UGV, use UGV to exactly identify and record the incidents, report results to judge, if possible return to station in time.

Environment:
The maximum operational area is not larger than ?00x?00 meters. The maximum distance to the pre-designated area is no longer than ?00m. The area may include paved regions, unpaved regions, trails, and off-road desert areas. Examples of obstacles include ditches, berms, washboard, sandy ground, standing water, fire, rocks and boulders, construction equipment, concrete safety rails, power line towers, wire fences and cattle guards. In addition to the existing natural obstacles, the organisers might place obstacles (e.g. equipment) in the operational area that may disable a vehicle if struck. These obstacles must be detected and circumnavigated by a vehicle to successfully complete the route.

Autonomous reconnaissance scenario for urban and non-urban terrain


General description:
On public demand we added another scenario for large vehicles that can not participate in the urban and/or non-urban scenario. Also fast small vehicles may apply for the new scenario. The scenario is explicitly devoted to autonomous task fulfillment. It includes an urban route (approx. 3 Km) and a non-urban route (approx. 2 Km). You can do one or the other or both. Beside the autonomous navigation the system has to do some reconnaissance task (detect coloured objects while moving, locate them and record object positions (preferably in some kind of map). The route will only be "specified" by some blurred and fuzzy GPS points (not more then 10 per route).

Terrain:
Urban, non-urban, outdoor, roads, tracks, woodland

Task:
Autonomously drive a pre-designated route, search autonomously (as far as possible) pre-designated area detect objects of interest (static and dynamic), identify, locate and record, report results to judge, if possible return to station in time.

Environment:
The maximum urban route is approx. 3 Km and the non-urban route approx. 2 Km. There will be absolutely no line of sight! The area may include paved regions, unpaved regions, trails, and off-road desert areas. Examples of obstacles include ditches, berms, washboard, sandy ground, standing water, fire, rocks and boulders, construction equipment, concrete safety rails, power line towers, wire fences and cattle guards. In addition to the existing natural obstacles, the organisers might place obstacles (e.g. equipment) in the operational area that may disable a vehicle if struck. These obstacles must be detected and circumnavigated by a vehicle to successfully complete the route.
