Task driven approach is widely used as an evaluation method for unmanned ground vehicles, however this approach may lead to many teams using the conservative approach to complete the task. Although the competition task can be completed, it has deviated from the goal of technological development. The proposed fuzzy comprehensive evaluation method combined with AHP (fuzzy-AHP) was validated in comprehensive evaluation of unmanned ground vehicles. The fuzzy-AHP evaluation method was successfully applied to evaluate the unmanned ground vehicle in “Future Challenge 2011” (FC’ 2011). To evaluate unmanned ground vehicles is a problem of multilevel comprehensive evaluation. It should be divided into different levels of evaluation based on the complexity of unmanned ground vehicles environment perception and intelligent behavioral decision-making. The index evaluation system of unmanned ground vehicles is established. Each factor matches with different weight coefficient to highlight the important one. The index weight is determined by AHP, then the fuzzy comprehensive evaluation method is applied to evaluate unmanned ground vehicles. Using fuzzy-AHP evaluation method not only takes into account all factors, but also considers all the information of all levels evaluation. Each factor matches with different weight coefficient to highlight the important evaluation factor. The quantitative results can reflect the actual situation, and facilitate the comparison or order of the result directly.
