What is Nav?

Nav is a system of robotic hardware components that allow users to control a vehicle both manually and robotically.


How it works

NAV is a system of robotic components that installs easily into any vehicle platform, converting it from manual to robotic control. Because each vehicle from each manufacturer is slightly different, we developed by-wire, mechanical, and hydraulic modules to accommodate for different vehicle types.



How it works


Components of Automation




Vehicle Control Unit

Vehicle Control Unit

The on-board computer that manages vehicle functions and communicates real-time vehicle status and health to the remote user.


Vantage

Vantage

Vantage software and sensors improve safety for robotic vehicles, initiating see-and-stop or see-and-avoid behavior when vehicles encounter obstacles in the environment.



Blackbox

Blackbox

Just like the airplane black box, the ASI BlackBox software upgrade enables the VCU to record critical data logs to a MicroSD card for playback and analysis.


Bridge

Bridge

Because each vehicle is fundamentally different, Bridge acts as an interface module that enables the vehicle's ancillary systems to correspond with ASI software and components.



Spotpoint

Spotpoint

SpotPoint mounts to the roof of any vehicle and acts as a protected casing for vital autonomous components such as GPS and radio antennas, cameras, and warning beacons.


Forecast

Forecast

The first step in environmental awareness, this specialized LiDAR sensor produces a 3D area readout that identifies potential obstacles and integrates seamlessly with Vantage.



Steering Ring

Steering Ring

For mechanically operated vehicles--like most consumer automobiles--the steering ring serves as a powerful robotic steering solution with improved speed and torque.


E-Stop

E-Stop

The on-board and remote emergency-stops (e-stop) serve as a safety override, immediately halting all vehicle operations, as well as a toggle between manual/automatic control.
