Since school will be over in less than 2 weeks and I will be graduating, then heading off to college I figured that I better get started on my summer project. I have decided that I want to make a fully autonomous vehicle. I have been heavily debating whether I want to make it an aerial vehicle such as a multi-copter or a land vehicle. After much deliberation I have decided on a land vehicle because I already have a really built up chassis and a multicopter would be too expensive for now.
My goals for this project:
- Auto navigate to a set GPS coordinates Do something at a set GPS coordinates Auto return to home Switch between auto and manual control with the 3rd channel button on the transmitter Object avoidance Automatically perform a maximum speed test Have a "drag race" mode that will keep the car tracking in a straight line and keep a distance from the car next to it Log GPS position and speed, g forces, angles "Launch control" to help from spinning out or flipping over when accelerating hard
What here seems unfeasible?
So here is what I have:
- Traxxas Slash 4x4 with 3ch 2.4GHz Rx+Tx, 4S 14.8V 5000mah 40C LiPo, Mamba Max Pro ESC, Tacon 4074 2150Kv BL Motor (Has been clocked at 60MPH+ :D) Arduino UNO R3 Adafruit Proto Screwshield Adafruit Ultimate GPS Logger Shield Adafruit RGB LCD Shield Kit w/ 16x2 Character Display Maxbotix Ultrasonic Rangefinder - LV-EZ1 Pololu LSM303DLM 3D Compass and Accelerometer Pololu L3G4200D 3-Axis Gyro Carrier
Is there anything else that I will need?
Any helpful links or suggestions?
