Fleet management of autonomous machines

Research Abstract

Based on the research background, the research started by identifying and proposing requirements for construction sites, suggesting the utilization of different map layers in paper A. Paper B then proposed a way of fusing the perceived data to a global dynamic occupancy map, enabling further control and navigation of the autonomous machines.

In the context of software testing/validation, the forthcoming research will prioritize the validation of the dynamic map and its connected functionalities in an autonomous machine setup. Special attention will be given to factors such as the Operational Design Domain (ODD) and safety considerations.
