Georgia Tech, as part of DARPA's Tactical Mobile Robotics (TMR) Program, is developing a wide range of mission specification capabilities for the urban warfighter. These include the development of a range of easily configurable mission-specific robot behaviors suitable for various battlefield and special forces scenarios; communications planning and configuration capabilities for small teams of robots acting in a coordinated manner; interactive graphical visual programming environments for mission specification; and real-time analysis tools and methods for mission execution verification. This paper provides an overview of the approach being taken by the Georgia Tech/Honeywell team and presents a range of preliminary results for a variety of missions in both simulation and on actual robots.
