Advanced Wearable Computer Interface for UGV Control

This effort studied the UGV control problem, evaluated the advanced technology options for creation of a wearable control system, and designed an optimum solution. Advanced technology options that were evaluated include: 1) hands-free interface solutions, such as voice recognition, eye tracking, gesture control, etc., 2) miniature force-feedback and other haptic devices, and 3) immersive and head-mounted displays. The result of this effort was the design of a highly intuitive and effective wearable computer interface for UGV operation, incorporating advanced control and display technologies.
