The goal of this senior project is to design, fabricate, and employ the use of an autonomous land drone in a wilderness environment for surveillance purposes. This vehicle will be able to traverse the rocky, densely forested, and often times, snowy and muddy terrain of the Maine wilderness. This vehicle will also boast surveillance capabilities such as video and acoustic data acquisition. The applications of such a vehicle are many, including border security, national park surveillance, and the enforcement of hunting laws and regulations at the forefront.
