Thanks to Leo for sending in his super cool project video, that shows an autonomous toy car powered by a raspberry pi B+ in action!
This is an autonomous toy car. It is driving itself around the track. I am not controlling the car. The car has a raspberry pi b+ computer board and a camera attached. I wrote software that would receive images from the camera, and determine which which way to turn (i.e provide the pwm value for the steering servo controller), and at what speed (i.e. provide pwm value for electronic speed control). The toy car chasis consists of the Traxxas Stamped R/C toy car minus the transmitter.
