Honda Autonomous Work completes vehicle prototype test

Honda and Black & Veatch have successfully tested the Honda Autonomous Work Vehicle (AWV) at the Black & Vatch construction site in New Mexico. In a month-long field test, the second-generation Honda AWV has been involved in a major solar energy project; These include towing activities and transportation of construction materials, water, and other supplies to pre-preparation. – Set destinations in the workplace.

Originally introduced as a concept at CAS 2018 in Las Vegas, Honda AWV combines the company’s unique and state-of-the-art on-the-road platform. The result is a new category of potential work vehicles that can be deployed in a variety of dynamic work environments. The Honda AWV uses a variety of sensors to operate independently, GPS for location, radar and lead detection obstacles, and stereoscopic (3D) cameras for remote monitoring. The vehicle can also be operated remotely.

Black & Vach, a global engineering, procurement and construction company focused on construction facilitation and technology innovation, in partnership with Honda, to provide Honda AWV technology with a real-world testing ground for active construction.
