This two-year long project is funded by the Generalitat Valenciana. A steering and acceleration actuation system was installed in this junior quad-bike. After that, an autonomous navigation system was run by using this actuation system.

Autonomous quad-bike was teleoperated in a first application. Steering angle and acceleration was provided to the vehicle by means of a Bluetooth communication.

After that, a laser sensor was added to the quad-bike. Information from the sensor was processed in order to obtain a map of the environment. Once some obstacle areas are detected, a collision-detection system is run.

If a collision is predicted, the navigation system modifies the current quad-bike maneuver in order to avoid such a predicted collision.
