Modified Transcript: At this time we have decided to go with a Max ATV Buffalo. One of the reasons we decided on this model was because it will provide us with enough storage space. We have also decided that we are not going to focus heavily on vision systems navigation so much as GPS navigation. One of the reasons for this decision is because one of the important parts of our project is to make sure that we have accurate measurements of the ice.
