Abstract

A navigation system for autonomous vehicles for use around homes, offices, parks and golf courses is described here. The system makes use of three naturally occurring forces and a digital odometer to track its motion in three dimensions from an arbitrary starting point. A digital map of the surface is created during a training run which can be followed during operation.
