Milrem’s Intelligent Functions Kit (MIFK) features beacon follow me that lowers the cognitive load of the UGV operator considerably. Intelligent Functions are a key capability and an integral part of THeMIS UGVs making them organic unit members and allowing soldiers to concentrate on the job at hand. MIFK also enables obstacle detection and avoidance, waypoint navigation and mission planner interface for complete remote control over the vehicle and all of its functions. During the demonstration Milrem Robotics unveiled their Intelligent Functions Kit (IFK), which converts any vehicle into a self-driving or remotely controlled one. Milrem Robotics’ IFK is a modular hardware and software kit providing ROS2 based environment for different functionalities, which can be provided by Milrem Robotics, the customer or a third party. The IFK has been developed for Milrem Robotics’ THeMIS UGV and Type-X but can be adapted to any other vehicle with drive-by-wire integration.
