ETG is an autonomous RC car that utilizes a RPi 3 and Arduino to localize itself in the environment and avoid colliding into other bots.
This project was made for the International Autonomous Robot Racing Challenge in Waterloo, Canada. I was the only single-man team and only high schooler from the USA to compete in the competition. All it needs to work is a bunch of training data and a cloud server. Once you collect training data, which is essentially showing the car how to drive around the track, you train it using any machine learning you want on a cloud server. You then run this model on your car and you can see it drive!
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!
Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
