Abstract

This paper identifies the need for a standard method of benchmarking emerging robotic systems with a focus on military, multi-robot convoys. Benchmarking is commonly used throughout academia and industry as a method of evaluating and comparing products. In this paper we propose a generic form that these benchmarks may take in the future. Classification categories, such as, obstacle avoidance, area mapping, and convoy coherence are all possible elements of this benchmark. The goal is a standard benchmark that can be used to evaluate military multi-robot convoy systems.
