In the Rough : In-Field evaluation of an autonomous vehicle for golf course maintenance
Dunbabin, Matthew, Roberts, Jonathan M., Usher, Kane, & Corke, Peter (2004) In the Rough : In-Field evaluation of an autonomous vehicle for golf course maintenance. In Proceedings. 2004 IEEE/RSJ International Conference on Intelligent Robots and Systems, 2004 (IROS 2004), IEEE, Sendai Japan, pp. 3339-3344.
Maintenance is a time consuming and expensive task for any golf course or driving range manager. For a golf course the primary tasks are grass mowing and maintenance (fertilizer and herbicide spreading), while for a driving range mowing, maintenance and ball collection are required. All these tasks require an operator to drive a vehicle along paths which are generally predefined. This paper presents some preliminary in-field tsting results for an automated tractor vehicle performing golf ball collection on an actual driving range, and mowing on difficult unstructured terrain.
