Abstract

Inspired by ongoing research and continuous developments in autonomous vehicles, the Robocart MQP focuses on the system development for a first-generation autonomous golf cart vehicle and wireless system server. By creating the foundation for a modular and interdisciplinary system, visualization software and mechanisms can be intuitively integrated. The end result of this project is a better understanding of the efficiency of each subsystems against the real-time challenges required for an autonomous, wireless, and vision-based system. In conclusion of this project, recommendations in mechanical, electrical, and algorithm development were formed to promote further research and enhance rider usability.
