WIZITANK - AUTONOMOUS GROUND VEHICLE


Wizitank, was our idea to develop a mini prototype of an autonomous vehicle, which that can be extended to be used by military for low intensity conflict for the purpose of monitoring the area and keeping an eye on enemy activities. It the team’s approach to building its robotic vehicle, the vehicle and components that let the vehicle see and act, and the computer software that made the vehicle autonomous.

Wizitank can be part of the future combat force to carry out tasks that would otherwise be difficult for a conventional manned vehicle. This vehicle will be innovative and cost-effective in awareness systems that serve and protect military, law enforcement and security professionals engaged in low-intensity conflict and anti-terrorism activities in urban & unstructured environments. In order to navigate autonomously, the vehicle will be mounted with sensors for evaluating the terrain and have software for interpreting the data, path planning to decide a safe course of action, and control to oversee that plan.
