Self Driving Car With Raspberry Pi #piday #raspberrypi @Raspberry_Pi
Make a self driving toy car using Raspberry Pi, Arduino and an RC car. via zhengludwid
Modify a RC car to handle three tasks: self-driving on the track, stop sign and traffic light detection, and front collision avoidance.
The system consists of three subsystems: input unit (camera, ultrasonic sensor), processing unit (computer) and RC car control unit.
A Raspberry Pi board (model B+), attached with a pi camera module and an HC-SR04 ultrasonic sensor is used to collect input data. Two client programs run on Raspberry Pi for streaming color video and ultrasonic sensor data to the computer via local Wi-Fi connection. In order to achieve low latency video streaming, video is scaled down to QVGA (320×240) resolution.
The processing unit (computer) handles multiple tasks: receiving data from Raspberry Pi, neural network training and prediction(steering), object detection(stop sign and traffic light), distance measurement(monocular vision), and sending instructions to Arduino through USB connection.
Each Friday is PiDay here at Adafruit! Be sure to check out our posts, tutorials and new Raspberry Pi related products. Adafruit has the largest and best selection of Raspberry Pi accessories and all the code & tutorials to get you up and running in no time!
Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
