Abstract

This paper originated as an IEEE conference paper based on the collaborative work between the University of Minho, Portugal and the PDRC research group at Middlesex involving a study of collaborative teamwork: “Gaspar, T., Rodrigues, H., Odedra, S., Costa, M., Metrôlho, J.C., Bardill, A. and Prior, S.D.

Published by the International Association for the Development of Advances in Technology (IADAT). This collaboration was made possible by a successful bid to the British Council's Windsor Treaty Programme in 2000. The focus of the project was on the design of an autonomous unmanned vehicle for surveillance and transport operations using Bluetooth (TM) technology.
