Autonomous vehicles are currently being developed by companies and universities all over the world. The OXTS GPS Inertial units such as the RT3000 can be linked to an Anthony Best Dynamics (ABD) Driving Robot and configured to drive down a predefined path. The whole system can follow the same path to within 2cm to 15cm depending on the conditions of the test. Changes to the vehicle can then be made and their effect can be assessed.
Oxford Technical Solutions' Inertial and GPS navigation systems and the ABD Driving Robots are successfully used in various autonomous projects such as the DARPA Challenge, the self-driving Volkswagen Golf 53+1, the unmanned vehicle 'Wildcat' from BAE Systems, etc.
