Abstract

In this project, we created a modular self- driving kit and a sensor kit that can be integrated into any scale RC car. The self driving kit works by processing images taken from the car through a neural network to adjust the car's steering and throttle. The sensor kit records the speed of drive shafts, rotations around pitch and roll axes, and temperature of the motor's batteries and sensor boards as the car is driving. These kits will be used in WPI's Advanced Engineering Design course where students design scale cars. The modular self driving kit and sensor kit will provide students with exposure to real-time data collection, and enhance their understanding in both mechatronic systems and autonomous driving developments.
