Autonomous Vehicles Laboratory
This laboratory is used for the construction of a variety of autonomous
Pictures of each of these are provided below.
- Autonomous carts
- Autonomous robotics transporter
- Automated Highway System (AHS) testbed
The following carts have been developed as senior design projects:
Autonomous Robotics Transporter (ART)
One long-term program presently underway is the development of an Autonomous
Robotics Transporter (ART). ART is an electric golf cart, being fitted with
sensing and steering instrumentation so as to navigate autonomously.
Automated Highway Systems
A flexible Multi-Vehicle Test-Bed, especially for Automated Highway System
(AHS) studies is being developed at TRC. The vehicles (presently, two cars
donated by Honda) will have an abundance of sensors, both for the car engine
and dynamics and for car-roadside and car-to-car investigations. A radar
system to "see" a stripe on the road, and a related steering system
is being developed. Studies ranging from vehicle dynamics to fault tolerant
control, vision systems to GPS are underway.
