AbstractThis paper describes a short distance telemetry network which measures and relays time, space, and position information among a group of ground vehicles. The goal is to allow a lead vehicle to be under human control, or perhaps controlled using advanced autonomous path planning and navigation tools. The telemetry network will then allow a series of inexpensive, unmanned vehicles to follow the lead vehicle at a safe distance. Ultrasonic and infrared signals will be relayed between the vehicles, to allow the following vehicles to locate their position, and track the lead vehicle.
