The purpose of this paper is to propose a design and development methodology in terms of robustness of unmanned vehicle (UV) software development, which minimizes the risk of software failure in both experimental and final solutions. The most common dangers in UV software development were determined, classified, and analyzed based on literature studies and the authors’ own experience in software development and analysis of open-source code. As a conclusion, “good practices” and failure countermeasures are proposed.
