Project Drive is an advanced project that requires students with previous experience to use integrated robotics systems, machine vision, and navigation/localization methods to design a compact autonomous RC car. Each year, a team of 6-10 people competes at F1Tenth (formerly SparkfunAVC).
The vehicle will need to be able to both navigate an obstacle course and run a time trial on an unobstructed track. This project serves as a learning experience for members to become familiar with team functionality, research, and robotics systems.
Technical Highlights and Skills involved:
- CAD design
- Signal processing with sensors
- Control theory with both PID and localization/navigation methods
- Computer vision.
