FPGA-Powered Autonomous Search And Rescue Vehicles

Make a FPGA-powered autonomous search and rescue vehicles. via instructables

This project represents an application for the 11-th (2015) edition of Digilent’s Design Contest, and consists of two mobile platforms. The theory behind its operation is that one of the platform performs the “search” function, whilst the other the “rescue”, as described in detail at step 2.
The first platform incorporates the following modules:
• One Nexys4DDR FPGA board
• One LCD screen
• One infrared (contactless) thermometer
• Three ultrasonic sensors
• One RF transmitter
• One Dual DC motors driver
• Four logic level converters
• Two DC motors
• Two rotary encoders
• One step-up switching mode power supply
• One step-down switching mode power supply
• One battery holder for eight 1.5V AA (R6) size batteries
The second platform consists of:
• One electronic speed controller (ESC)
• One RF receiver and PWM driver module
• One Dual DC motors driver
• Two servomotors (which power a makeshift stretcher)
• Two DC motors
• One step-down switching mode power supply
• One battery holder for eight 1.5V AA (R6) size batteries
