This document presents the work's schedule for the masters scholarship required by Mr. Rafael de Angelis Cordeiro. This project proposes the development of a complete dynamic model for a four wheel vehicle with Ackerman steering and electric propulsion, as well as its use in a simulation environment, focusing strategies of control and autonomous navegation of the vehicle, both in rural environments (agricultural robotics) as in urban environments (low speeds).The project is located into the context of the relation between the Faculty of Mechanical Engineering (FEM/UNICAMP) and the Technology and Information Center Renato Archer (CTI), where the advisor has made researches for 12 years (1997-2009). The test platform is the electrical vehicle of the VERO project - External Robotic Vehicle.
