The goal of this project was to implement a mechanical hardware system capable of autonomous navigation and obstacle avoidance within any environment. The vehicle is capable of crossing relatively rough terrain while maintaining the main housing box level using an articulation arm which allows each set of left and right wheels to pivot independently around the central compartment. In order to survive in remote environments, the vehicle also has low power consumption. The vehicle also has the option of being remotely controlled for additional testing purposes.
