Abstract

The Goat Cart is an autonomous vehicle that will be summoned via mobile app and safely drive around Worcester Polytechnic Institute’s campus. In order to accomplish this multiyear goal, this year’s team worked on the essentials of the golf cart. The primary subsystems of steering, braking, throttle, power and sensors were all improved and updated so the cart can drive-by-wire. The 2017-18 team worked to create a solid electro-mechanical base that future years can build off.
