Each Guideline unit mounts to the front of an unmanned convoy vehicle and extends a Kevlar tether that clips to a lead vehicle. As the leader moves, sensors in Guideline interpret the movements of the tether into robotic commands that direct the follower vehicle to mimic the exact path of the leader. Guideline is useful for military, mining, and farming environments, and allows unmanned convoys to operate in areas of low visibility, poor weather, and GPS-denied environments.
