Because of its compact size and off-road capabilities, this self-driving four-wheeler is highly maneuverable and an ideal choice for a variety of terrains from construction sites to urban pedestrian zones to wooded areas. The Honda AWV can be programmed in different modes and patterns to accommodate a range of applications.

Honda introduced the Autonomous Work Vehicle in 2018. Since then, the company has worked with a variety of partners to beta-test and evaluate it in an array of applications ranging from a large-scale solar operations company, wildland firefighting, and an agricultural research facility.
