Honda Is Making An Autonomous ATV
December 18th, 2018
Honda’s autonomous ATV could save time, money, and maybe even lives in some situations. The “Honda Autonomous Work Vehicle” will debut at the 2019 Consumer Electronic Show and is based on the existing ATC but fitted with a more rugged drivetrain. It’s been tested and used to help clear foliage while pulling a lawnmower, helped firefighters go over rough terrain and carry heavy equipment and carried crops from the fields to packaging areas and apply pesticides. The AWV's compact size and all-wheel-drive capability, not to mention a high degree of build customization provided by a rail accessory mount system, allowed Honda's self-drive workhorse to tackle these different roles. Basically, the ATV can go where humans can’t so could save lives in case of emergencies such as natural disasters or unsafe situations.
