The Modeling of the Terrain Passability Of Military Vehicles
POSTER: Passability belongs to the basic requirements of the military vehicles. Operational planning (both military and civilian), especially with regards to emergency service, needs to be able to determine best route possible. For this purpose it is of utmost importance to analyse terrain passability, optimal route and in best case scenario to predict relocation time. State-of-the-art computing technology and software led by geographical informational systems (GIS) enables fast and thorough terrain passability analysis. An obstacle for terrain passability assessment with GIS is mostly the creation of suitable tool for modeling - whether those are databases, mathematical equations or combining different aspects in one functional tool. The verification of the model is only possible by real test and by comparing the results of those tests with the modeled situation. The results of modeling and their verification are subjects of publicated poster.
