Autonomous car using full mapping GPS system
MetadataShow full item record
Our project is an Autonomous Car using full mapping GPS, which is based on a Laptop computer to generate the path coordinates and an Android phone to obtain the GPS data and used the mobile camera as the obstacle detection image processing unit. An Arduino is used as the brain of the system. The car which we made features electric motor driving of each of the two front wheels via independent controllers and has full drive-by-wire control of the throttle, steering and braking system. Nowadays the traffic has increased by quite a huge number. In this situation due to excessive number of vehicle accidents occurs rapidly. Driver issue is also a great problem. Our target by creating Autonomous Car is to increase efficiency by reducing manpower, reducing the possibilities of accidents and to ensure the safety of the passengers as well as the pedestrians. But the best part of our project (Autonomous Car) is to serve the applications for military purpose where the situation is inconvenient, dangerous or impossible to have human operator present. Already some country used many types of Autonomous vehicle or Unmanned Ground Vehicle (UGV) for military purpose and other important work. There are many Driverless or Autonomous Vehicles already exist and are perfectly used in many challenging field work. Actually this is the future and we are researching on it. Generally, our vehicle will have a set of sensor to observe the environment, and will either autonomously make a decision about its behavior or pass the information to a human operator at a different location who will control the vehicle trough teleportation.
