Unmanned Ground Vehicle

An unmanned ground vehicle or UGV is essentially an AI controlled land based motor vehicle, which may be either military or non military in purpose. They typically function as expendable drivers for hazardous conditions in military work.

UGVs tend to be very sophisticated specialist purpose AIs, able to operate a vehicle at least as well as a human driver, choosing their own route and reacting to changing circumstances around them.

Using UAVs to Ramp up Development of Aerial Sensor Webs
In concept it is quite brilliant using a small, cheap, practically 3D printable unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) to greatly accelerate the development of aerial sensors, by allowing them to quickly and easily be fitted to the UAV, and launched into the air without a moment's hesitation. Something needs tweaking, the small plane is landed, the sensor detached, tweaked, reattached and the whole thing lifts again.

The Media Vehicle, is a serious take on VR interfacing, however it is not a serious commercial device. The unit is, for lack of a better phrase, an ?art tool?. It exists to showcase what is currently possible in 2009, not as a device which expects a practical market.
