Spun off from Utah State University, Autonomous Solutions, Inc. (aka ASI) is structured to manufacture independent automation technology that can be retrofitted to existing equipment. Using GPS, radio, and software technologies to create a fully autonomous vehicle, ASI has installations in the mining, farming, automotive, and military industries. Originally part of the Center for Self-Organizing and Intelligent Systems (CSOIS) division of Utah State University in Logan, Utah, the firm initially targeted development of precision agriculture technologies for John Deere - later expanding to address mining industry concerns - with mining currently one of ASI's four premier markets. The firm then also entered the automotive market with specific offerings for automotive proving grounds for autonomous durability and endurance testing. Over that period, Ford announced ASI as their preferred automation supplier for their robotic durability testing program. Autonomous Solutions Inc designs and manufactures unmanned vehicles, software, and components for various industrial and agricultural customers, and government/military agencies. THese include a small robot platform for military and industrial operations - used in various applications, including mobile and unmanned surveillance, rough terrain scouting, and pulling or carrying ammunition or wounded soldiers in dangerous areas. Another offering is an ATV platform enabling a single operator to perform complex troop assistance, border patrol, and perimeter security missions with multiple vehicles from one location. The firm also offers an under-vehicle inspection system, an omni-directional platform, performs under-vehicle visual inspections for weapons, explosives, or other contraband and suspicious activities- and provides vehicle automation kits; Guideline robotic convoy system for military convoys in active combat zones, military base logistics, highway speed convoys, construction equipment convoys, and more; and Forecast 3D laser system that enables to navigate an autonomous vehicle in multi-obstacle/multi-vehicle situations. In addition, the company offers Mobius command and control software, a robotics software system for unmanned vehicle systems using the SAE AS-4 protocol for agriculture, construction, military, automotive testing, and mining industries; Vantage obstacle detection and avoidance software system, which generates maps, and plots and executes course directions around detected obstacles; and TruSpective, a 3D navigation and manipulation software that uses a 3D sensor and camera to create a real-time rendering of a robot and world as a control window.
