Abstract : A miniature vehicle usable by the military for target training. The vehicle contains a radio receiver and propulsion-steering means responsive to radio output for causing the vehicle to execute evasive maneuvers. A technician equipped with a radio sending set at a remote location causes the miniature vehicle to execute unexpected evasive maneuvers, while soldiers undergoing training fire rifle rounds at the vehicle in a simulated battle field situation.
