Our versatile AVC can be interfaced with most existing unmanned and manned vehicles. The AVC provides functionality for a robot to do waypoint or target following, collect situational awareness for obstacle avoidance, and provides a high-level interface with a human operator. Our AVC incorporates most essential functions required for unmanned guided vehicles (UGV). It interfaces to global and proximity sensors and to an on-board sensor network. This enables the AVC to perform sensor fusion, perceive its surrounding environment, modify path/motion planning and adaptively control the vehicle as it interacts with control and guidance commands from human operators. JADI’s AVC features an embedded wireless network (IEEE 802.11), GPS, CAN networks, multiple serial and parallel communication ports, and an inertial measurement unit. The AVC uses the latest generation 32-bit PowerPC processor to execute the autonomous robotic functions. Its design utilizes off-the-shelf components proven in the automotive environment. The JADI AVC is compliant with the Microsoft Robotics Studio (MSRS) architecture which enables it to be compatible with MSRS supported systems. JADI provides a full system solution for autonomous guidance of robotic vehicles. This system includes our AVC, our reconfigurable ultra-wideband (UWB) local positioning system (LPS), a global positioning system (GPS), and JADI’s GeoPathMaker™ trajectory planning tool. This versatile and comprehensive system provides both indoor and outdoor guidance solutions for most autonomous robotic applications. The JADI AVC provides a practical means to adapt mobile work platforms into autonomous robotic vehicles. JADI has identified the material handling, agriculture and the defense & homeland security industries as ideal candidates for our AVC . AVC Applications and Commercialization Opportunities • Surveillance and Security. Our AVC provides an autonomous robotic solution to surveillance and security. The robotic solution decreases human exposure to potentially dangerous and hazardous situations while reducing manpower requirement. • Mine Detection. The dangerous task of mine-detection is made safer and more intuitive, using the AVC on a robotic mine detection vehicle. An operator can draw the perimeter of the field to sweep and the GeoPathMaker™ will remotely control the mine detecting vehicle. • Agriculture & Material Handling. The AVC is ideal for both these commercial applications where accurate positioning and advanced guidance technology for are required. Our AVC can be installed on any vehicle that has drive-by-wire capability i.e. electric steering, throttle and brake.
