Honda has unveiled the third-generation Autonomous Work Vehicle (AWV) at CONEXPO-CON/AGG 2023 in Las Vegas, showcasing its emerging autonomous technology for construction-related activities. This all-electric vehicle is fully programmable and designed to support rugged off-road work environments, with the aim of enhancing workforce productivity.
The AWV can operate autonomously or manually via remote control, allowing for flexibility in different scenarios. Honda has also developed a simplified tablet-based programming interface and cloud connectivity, making it easier to manage and operate the vehicle. Additionally, the AWV features improved navigation capabilities in areas where global navigation satellite system (GNSS) service is weak or unavailable.
Multiple AWVs can transport and deliver construction materials and supplies at precise locations along a pre-set route, increasing efficiency and productivity in the workplace. Furthermore, Honda is exploring the development of attachments and tools that could make the vehicle suitable for a variety of work environments.
The company is seeking potential business partners and companies to further improve the AWV platform’s performance and design specifications. With this latest innovation, Honda hopes to revolutionize the way the construction industry operates, making it easier, more efficient, and more productive.
