AGV Wendy Darling

AMERICAN INDUSTRIAL MAGIC worked on building three vehicles for the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency's DARPA Challenge series of autonomous vehicle races.   AIM also provided technical support to DARPA and to the other teams preparing for the race series that ended Nov. 2007.

Automatic Guided Vehicle WENDY DARLING was a standard 2-1/2 Ton US Army supply truck that the AIM Team was modifying for the race.  Now dismantled, the parts from this vehicle have used on other projects or as training aids.
.
More historical information about the vehicle and the race will be added to this page as volunteer hours become available.  In the mean time you can e-mail me with any questions you have and I will try to answer them as soon as possible.
