Title: UNMANNED VEHICLE, SYSTEM AND METHODS FOR COLLISION AVOIDANCE BETWEEN UNMANNED VEHICLE
Abstract:
Some embodiments are directed to an unmanned vehicle for use with a companion unmanned vehicle. The unmanned vehicle can include a satellite navigation unit that is configured to receive a satellite signal indicative of a current position of the unmanned vehicle. The unmanned vehicle can also include an inertial navigation unit that is configured to determine the current position of the unmanned vehicle. The unmanned vehicle can also include a control unit disposed in communication with the satellite navigation unit and the inertial navigation unit. The control unit is configured to determine a planned position of the unmanned vehicle based on the planned path, compare the current position determined by the inertial navigation unit with the planned position based on the planned path, and control the movement of the unmanned vehicle based on at least the comparison between the current position and the planned position.
