Kairos Autonomi Pronto4 Uomo

In 10 minutes the Pronto4 Uomo converts existing man-drivable vehicles into remotely operated vehicles. Uomo sits in a driver seat and controls steering, brake, throttle, and transmission through tele-operation or GPS path following. This form factor releases the user from committing to one vehicle platform or a particular vehicle.

The Uomo weighs less than 50 lbs, is transportable in a case or rucksack. The system can be powered from vehicle power or BB5590 batteries. Various IP radio configurations are supported.
