: : Development of an Autonomous Field Transport Vehicle
with an Active Vision System
The development of prototype autonomous transport vehicles for use in construction sites is described. Such vehicles are expected to be
in high demand in the near future in countries where aging of construction workers is becoming a serious problem. Two prototypes have been built
so far and have undergone extensive testing. Vision systems used in the very rough operational environment of construction sites is discussed, as
well as other aspects of the vehicle. A unique vision-based navigation operated well under extremely dynamic conditions. When completed in the
near future, the project is expected to create a vehicle which would lessen the burden of workers in construction sites.
