Project Drive

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.
