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.
