"Our judges recognized Guideline as a true innovator out of the many products in its category," said Frank Bonafilia, executive director of the Edison Awards.
Guideline uses a Kevlar cord to connect unmanned vehicles to a lead vehicle. Sensors in the Guideline unit measure the cord to determine the direction, speed, and distance of the lead vehicle and relay the data to the unmanned computer system of the follower vehicle. The vehicle control system then plots a course that exactly mimics the lead vehicle's pathway.
