Abstract

This paper proposes an agent-oriented ground vehicle automation that uses low-cost hardware. The vehicle's platform consists in a group of hardware and software layers that acts with the Jason programming language for unmanned vehicles automation. This paper also presents a methodology with four programming layers to facilitate the hardware integration and implementation. To validate and demonstrate the platform an unmanned ground vehicle was constructed using an ATMEGA328 microcontroller, a library for serial communication and a six-function remote controlled vehicle. The vehicle is able to move from one point to another based on its global position.
