The unmanned ground vehicle (UGV) is a mechanical machine that moves along the surface of ground whose task is to carry or transport something, it does not carry a human being. The UGV provides flexible robotic platform along with providing multipurpose mobility support. The major applications of the vehicles are in the defense sector; it includes providing surveillance information, carry supplies, assists in explosive activation. Moreover, the vehicles are used in emergency services that include police and ambulance.
Reduction in risk of human life and impressive vehicle combat performance drive the market. Moreover, increased demand in civilian applications, which includes homeland security and commercial purpose also fuel the growth. The cuts in defense budgets by the developed countries and the restricted battery life of the vehicles limit the market growth. However, rise in demand to increase operational efficiency and demand for autonomous control systems are some of the lucrative market opportunities for the unmanned ground vehicle market.
The unmanned ground vehicle market is segmented on the basis of size, mode of locomotion, operation, application, and geography.
