Abstract

In this work a low cost electronic solution adapted for control and communication of a convoy of electrical vehicle prototypes based on multi-agent system -MAS- is presented. From the obtained results in previous works, focused on mobile platforms with PC architecture and Bluetooth communication module, a new electronic system has been designed based on the 32 bits microcontroller AT91SAM7S256 and the communication module nRF2401A. With which, it obtains a greater integration of the final mobile prototype and a greater communication capability between the devices connected in wireless network.
