The NavLab II mobile robot was built approximately three years ago to serve as a general purpose autonomous navigation testbed. Since that time, a number of sensors and sensor support equipment has been added to the vehicle, increasing the vehicle power draw and weight and decreasing the systems overall performance. This report describes a power and weight distribution study that was done as a precursor to a redesign of the vehicle configuration. The engineers used these power consumption measurements and the vehicle weight distribution in the design of the next version of the NavLab 11.
