Honda sees this autonomous ATV as a vehicle that spreads fertilizer, plows snow, and pick up crops in the future.
The plan is for construction workers, farmers, and anyone else that needs to carry large loads have an easier time lugging things around. The ATV is electric, powered by swappable batteries and has a rack system. It has a GPS and a guidance system. Best of all, you can control it via an app on your smartphone.
