Version 5.1By integrated with Forge's CAN system, NAV manages most of the basic vehicle functions such as braking, steering, transmission, boom operation, and implement control.
Acceleration Actuator OptionThrottle is controlled by an electro-mechanical actuator that applies pressure to the accelerator.
CAN-based Throttle OptionIf the Forge vehicle model natively controls throttle via CAN signals, NAV can electronically control throttle.
HD Motion X CamerasVideo cameras capture the vehicle-view, allowing an operator using remote control, teleoperation, or full autonomy to see and react to terrain and obstacles.
Roof Rack IntegratedIntegrated closely with the roof rack, the flashing beacon signals to others in the area that a vehicle is operating in autonomous mode and to maintain caution.
Additional Beacon UpgradeAdditional flashing beacons improve recognition of vehicles operating in autonomous mode.
Primary GPSPrecision GPS units allows operators to track Forge's position and direction of travel down to cm accuracy.
Secondary GPS UpgradeA second GPS unit assists the command and control software in establishing the position and direction a stationary Forge is facing.
RadioTwo-way radios link the remote operator with Forge, exporting vehicle and sensor data and importing commands from the operator or command and control software.
Base StationIn case of emergency, each Forge is equipped with an onboard and remote emergency stop system that immediately halts all vehicle functions.
Version 3.2 UpgradeConsists of both sensor and software components that enable an autonomous vehicle to detect and react to approaching obstacles.
3D Laser UpgradeVertically spinning LiDAR sensor that maps a three dimensional space surrounding the autonomous vehicle.
Dual Radar UpgradeThe vision-based sensor utilizes stereo vision camera readouts to provide realtime, three-dimensional obstacle detection.
Skid Steer Attachments
ApplicationsForge leverages more than a hundred universal skid steer attachments to enable fully autonomous tasks such as mowing, spraying, and trenching.
