This report presents results of the research performed on the Autonomous Land Experimental Vehicle (ALX) at the
University of Minnesota. ALX autonomously follows roadways through the use of visual perception, and executes
obstacle detection and collision avoidance through the use of ultrasonic sonar range sensors. This report describes the
ALX embedded real-time control system based on a multi-processor, multi-tasking architecture, and presents algorithms
used for visual perception, path tracking, position estimation, obstacle detection, and collision avoidance. Computer
simulation and experimental results also are presented.
