Patria heavy UGV evolves with latest tests

6th July 2020 - 10:00 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


The Patria AMV 8x8 vehicle can now be operated remotely from BVLoS as a heavy UGV with 4G and 5G wireless network technology, the Finland-based manufacturer announced on 6 July.

In co-operation with the University of Tampere, Patria demonstrated a remote-controlled Patria AMV 8x8 vehicle with a 5G network as part of the RemoteFeel industrial research project in Finland.

Patria stated that the demonstration involved its Remote Operating Desk (ROD) user interface that includes AR features and ‘haptic [touch-based] feedbacks enabling more authentic remote-driving operations’. Other equipment tested on the Patria AMV included a combined stereo camera system developed by the University of Tampere.

Patria demonstrated its heavy UGV capabilities for the first time with two 8x8 vehicles in 2018, and the company claims its unmanned solution can now be integrated into new Patria AMV XP, 6x6 vehicles and in-service AMV 8x8s ‘without any major changes in the vehicle configuration’.
