What is the definition of UGV?

Stands for unmanned/uncrewed ground vehicle. A UGV is a land (or seabed) vehicle that operates without a human operator on-board.

UGVs are often used in applications where it may be inconvenient, dangerous, or impossible to have a human operator present.

UGVs may be used either under remote control by a human operator or, if so designed and equipped, autonomously via onboard sensors, navigation systems and computers.
