TerraMax - The future of unmanned ground vehicles and leader-follower technology.

Completely autonomous, requiring no driver and no remote control, the TerraMax was developed to help take troops out of harm's way and reduce the personnel necessary to maintain supply lines. Based on Oshkosh Truck's MTVR (Medium Tactical Vehicle Replacement) defense truck, TerraMax is equipped with technologies that include complex sensing systems, high-power computers and drive-by-wire technology.

TerraMax was one of only five vehicles, and the only tactical cargo hauler, to complete the 2005 DARPA (Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency) Grand Challenge's 132-mile desert course. TerraMax exhibited obstacle avoidance, GPS waypoint following, and 30 hours of continuous operation - all applicable to military missions.

Oshkosh Truck has already integrated unmanned and leader-follower technology in the PLS, a 10-wheel-drive truck and trailer system.

Team Oshkosh is now preparing to compete in the third DARPA Grand Challenge, the Urban Challenge, which calls for teams to compete to build an autonomous vehicle able to complete a 60-mile urban course safely in less than six hours.
