Today, model based simulation is a popular scheme for simulating real world events. There has been some effort to use the same models that have been developed for simulation purposes for control applications. This approach permits model reuse and reliability for critical embedded control applications. In this paper a simulation model of an autonomous robot has been used to control a simulated reconnaissance vehicle on battle field. Since it is very costly to construct a real battle field situation and to verify the performance of military devices, model continuity from simulation to embedded control is a cost-effective and easy process for developing military applications. We have used DEVS (Discrete EVent System specification) formalism to define the robotic vehicle model and conducted variety of tests by simulation variety of scenarios. The final model has been embedded on a tank shaped robot.
