The computer equipment is based on a Single Board Computer using an passive motherboard. There is a CAN bus on board for communication and three wireless communication systems: RS-232, Video link, and Wireless Ethernet. The AGV is capable of running for 6 hours without being recharged because of a 72 Ah battery.

Background: The AGV has evolved through numerous projects since 1990.
