Abstract

Networked autonomous vehicles have long been a dream, promising traffic-less cities and safer roads. This MQP laid the foundations for a vision-based autonomous ground vehicle. The team this year outfitted a 1995 golf cart with sensors and motors to automate the steering and brakes to lay a strong foundation for future teams. Additional work was done mounting of two stereoscopic cameras and a display for computer feedback as well as foundational work on the controls algorithms.
