Abstract

The use of unmanned autonomous vehicles is becoming more and moresignificant in recent years. The fact that the vehicles are unmanned(whether autonomous or not), can lead to greater difficultiesin identifying failure and anomalous states, since the operator cannotrely on its own body perceptions to identify failures. Moreover, asthe autonomy of unmanned vehicles increases, it becomes more difficultfor operators to monitor them closely, and this further exacerbatesthe difficulty of identifying anomalous states, in a timely manner.Model-based diagnosis and fault-detection systems have been proposedto recognize failures. However, these rely on the capabilities ofthe underlying model, which necessarily abstracts away from the physicalreality of the robot. In this paper we propose a novel, model-free, approachfor detecting anomalies in unmanned autonomousvehicles, based on their sensor readings (internal and external). Experimentsconducted on Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) and Unmanned Ground Vehicles (UGVs) demonstrate the efficacy of the approach by detecting the vehiclesdeviations from nominal behavior.
