    Abstract

    This paper describes the basic operations of a navigating convoy of vehicles which are automatic but are led by a manually driven master vehicle. The convoy navigation system simulated and tested is based on distance measurement between the vehicles.The navigation is aided by dead reckoning of all the vehicles.
