Created an autonomous RC car using Arduino that could traverse between GPS coordinates and dodge obstacles while moving. This project started in the Advanced Robotics class taught by Mr.Les Tekamp. After the project was completed, I extended the project to have various modular functions that could be easily assembled together to allow the robot to complete other tasks easily. The code was designed modular for the use of others who wanted to take this project in various directions.
The mechanical setup on the car took quite a bit of time to implement. I had to connect the motor wires from the car to the Arduino. I also various devices including a compass, GPS, limit switches, sonar, and LCD. A camera was not used but could easily be added. A Pixycam might be an ideal choice because of its known ability to work with Arduino.
