Default Autonomous Drones / Ships

Hi peeps,

I've a question regarding autonomous vehicles in orbiter. I was wondering if there are any addons that have vehicles that are completely automated from where I could get some inspiration.

I'm thinking about creating maintenance drones for a project (starship) that I'm currently working on with a group of people. It is build up out of a large number of modules of the same shape. (truncated octahedrons) These modules need to be disconnected and rearranged on the fly and the drones are the vehicles that provide the engines for these modules.

So I was wondering if it is possible to program some kind of pathfinding AI and remotely tell a drone to dock to a module, pick it up and dock to the module to the other side of the ship.

Has something similar to this already been developed?
Do you think it is remotely possible to make something like this?


Cheers!

Perhaps this:
Carrier Operations 2 :The Nimitz V0.03 Carrier Operations Script Vessel


It's quite simple to make stuff move around, like circle a point.
You can create that sort of stuff using LUA. But for more complex stuff it might not be enough.

AFAIK, the folks from the Orbiter Battle Simulation Project already implemented some kind of AI for that purpose. I don't know whatever happened to that, though.
