Test Vehicle
Javelina UGV

Power:       12VDC Deep Cycle Optima Battery

Motors:       NPC 2212 12VDC PM Wheelchair Motors

Instruments:       Differential GPS,Short Range Sonar, Intermediate Range Radar, Laptop Computer, Digital Compass,
Closed Loop Steering and Throttle Controllers.

Design Philosophy: The Javelina is the electronic twin of the Coyote UGV. I built the Javelina in order to more easily test the entire sensing and navigation sytems without the logistical problems associated with a 1-ton vehicle.

The Javelina allows me to do most of the initial testing at home, then transfer the equipment to the Coyote for field testing.
