The Requirements for Future Military Robots Supporting Mobility

POSTER: The paper deals with tasks related to engineer support to mobility, contemporary requirements for military robots and their possible future application within mobility support task. The result of this paper is an evaluation of requirements for engineer vehicles predestined for the tasks of engineer mobility support and analysis of the individual engineer tasks from the perspective of the realization by military robots in future operations. Knowledge obtained by studying of scientific and professional literature was assessed by methods of analysis and deduction. Methods of induction and synthesis were used for exploring the possibilities of future application of military robots and for gathering partial conclusions. Information dealing with requirements for engineer means supporting mobility were gathered by method of structured interview from chosen experts. The text provides a general insight in to the issue of robotization of engineer tasks related to engineer support to mobility and requirements for military robots. Thus it mediates a preview on the future performance of engineer mobility tasks and it can serve as a guidance for consideration of prospective investments into engineer corps.
