Autonomous Tug

APRIL 9, 2019

Mendon, Utah – Autonomous Solutions, Inc. (ASI), the industry leader for practical vehicle autonomy, has introduced a new GPS-denied navigation solution for vehicle positioning.

This solution is ideal where satellite-based navigation is not an option, such as near buildings, under trees, near radio interference, and indoors. Historically, indoor positioning has relied on infrastructure installations such as magnets or wires in the floor or laser reflectors around a perimeter. These methods only allow travel on installed routes or only work if there’s nothing blocking a vehicle’s line of sight to the reflectors. Many new robotics technologies, vehicles, and applications have been waiting for a good positioning system that works without access to traditional satellite navigation systems and is free from the constraints imposed by indoor positioning infrastructure.

ASI’s GPS-denied navigation technology has been developed and tested in operational real-world facilities, including the following example applications. Autonomous floor-cleaning robots operate in a retail shopping environment where shelving remains the same, but smaller displays may be moved around, and in stockroom or warehouse areas. The routes followed by security robots often include going into and out of buildings. Material handling in a constantly changing package handling facility poses a particularly difficult problem; ASI’s technology has been designed to handle constantly changing environments, providing unmatched system uptime, flexibility, and ease of deployment. The system has also been tested in underground mining, where the automation technologies deployed in surface mines need only an alternative positioning system to make them feasible underground.



ASI now has a team of engineers dedicated to developing and fielding Facility Robotics technologies for use in cleaning, security, material handling, and similar applications. As the team that developed ASI’s GPS-denied navigation solution, they are the ideal partners to help bring to market exciting new products to assist facility operations by creating opportunities, improving performance, and saving money.

Autonomous Solutions, Inc. (ASI) has received Phase I funding from the U.S. Army Combat Capabilities Development Command Ground Vehicles Systems Center (formerly TARDEC) to improve the way heavy vehicles stop while operating autonomously.

“Bringing large autonomous vehicles to a safe stop in varying environments can be challenging,” said Jeff Ferrin, CTO of ASI. “Having additional funding from the Army to further develop this technology will help us make autonomous vehicles safer, which is always our number-one priority.”

The objective of the Army in awarding this grant is to develop and demonstrate a system that can be operated remotely and considers both the dynamics of the vehicle, as well as the environment, to optimally and safely bring a large ground vehicle to a complete stop despite the terrain.

“ASI has been working on terrain characterization with the Army since 2014,” said Ferrin. “This project will use similar technology to make sure the vehicle is aware of the terrain around it. This model of the terrain will then be used by the vehicle to ensure a safer stop is completed.”

A significant focus of this intelligent urgent stop initiative is machine learning. This improved technology will continuously monitor the interaction between a vehicle and its surroundings and update the internal model that is used to properly halt the vehicle. This process will allow the vehicle to learn and adapt as the terrain and environment change.

As the advanced solution is developed, tested and proven, it can be used by ASI’s autonomous vehicles across all the company’s multiple industries, including agriculture, automotive, construction haulage, mining, facility robotics and more.



According to Ferrin, “The system can be used with any drive-by-wire vehicle. It will interface with the brakes and steering to bring the vehicle to a safe, controlled stop.”

Details of the Phase I stage awarded to ASI include development of a concept design using commercial-off-the-shelf (COTS) sensors to perform safe deceleration of a large ground vehicle. A concept design report and performance analysis report are required deliverables before Phase II can be awarded.

These tests that auto manufacturers must put their vehicles through to prove them out are extremely rough and hazardous to human health. Drivers are often injured and sent to hospitals. These tracks and tests are so rough and must be executed so precisely, even professional drivers can struggle to pass them. ASI driverless robots, utilizing the latest in driverless technology, are able to consistently stay on course and follow the track test instructions precisely. This means less errors, better test results, and lower costs.

“The Mobius platform is very beneficial because it allows us to run all the vehicles from one location,” says Jeff Bledsoe, durability technical specialist for Ford Motor Company.

How is the technology integrated into various types of vehicles? ASI’s technology is OEM agnostic and can be put into nearly any vehicle, make, model, or year. Whether the vehicle has electronic or mechanical controls, ASI’s driverless robotic kits are installed and integrated into a vehicle. It can be moved from one vehicle to another quite easily and also allows a human driver to sit in the driver seat and drive the vehicle manually when needed.

Some infrastructure is required on site for communications between the vehicles on the track and a control room where operators oversee the operation.

“The Mobius platform is very beneficial because it allows us to run all the vehicles from one location,” says Jeff Bledsoe, durability technical specialist for Ford Motor Company.

Vehicles are tasked to execute the prescribed tests from here. These tests are setup within Mobius and a single operator can oversee multiple vehicles from the control room.
