Unmanned Ground Systems

Honda Autonomous Work Vehicle

At the 2018 Consumer Electronics Show, Honda announced the concept of the Honda Autonomous Work Vehicle. Part of that announcement was an invitation for organizations to submit proposals for development and testing. The CoE provided a research proposal to Honda focused on investigating opportunities in wildland firefighting in Colorado. As a result, Honda and the CoE worked to perform testing in the fall of 2018 on the Lake Christine Fire burn area. This report details that work. The CoE and Honda are currently planning follow-up research in the Fall of 2019.
