Dull and dirty operations that could put human lives at stake are more and more being executed by the unmanned ground vehicles. Rescue operations, firefighting, surveillance, mine clearance, bomb defusal, logistics, and combat missions are amongst the various applications. The development and use of autonomous functions for driving and other non-weapon functions are increasing, but combat functions are restrained by ethical questions. The use of combat applications is expected to grow further after military field testing and doctrine development.

Most small UGVs use battery electric drive systems, where medium and large UGV’s have either Diesel or Hybrid power. Small UGVs largely use tracks and are remote controlled, mainly for local reconnaissance and EOD operations. Large platforms are used for route clearing, demining, engineering, reconnaissance, and flank support in formation for tanks. Some of them are converted manned platforms.
