autonomous-rc-car - Autonomous RC car using Raspberry Pi and ANN

  •    Python

This project aims to build an autonomous rc car using supervised learning of a neural network with a single hidden layer. We have not used any Machine Learning libraries since we wanted to implement the neural network from scratch to understand the concepts better. We have modified a remote controlled car to remove the dependency on the RF remote controller. A Raspberry Pi controls the DC motors via an L293D Motor Driver IC. You can find a post explaining this project in detail here. Here's a video of the car in action. We will be referring the DC motor controlling the left/right direction as the front motor and the motor controlling the forward/reverse direction as the back motor. Connect the BACK_MOTOR_DATA_ONE and BACK_MOTOR_DATA_TWO GPIO pins(GPIO17 and GPIO27) of the Raspberry Pi to the Input pins for Motor 1(Input 1, Input 2) and the BACK_MOTOR_ENABLE_PIN GPIO pin(GPIO22) to the Enable pin for Motor 1(Enable 1,2) in the L293D Motor Driver IC. Connect the Output pins for Motor 1(Output 1, Output 2) of the IC to the back motor.

burro - Platform for small-scale self-driving vehicles.

  •    Python

Burro is a platform for small-scale self-driving cars. Using Burro you can build either a RC-style Ackermann steering car, or a Differential steering car (like a three-wheel robot). Depending on your hardware Burro will automatically select and setup the right kind of vehicle each time you run it. Thus you may share the same SD card among different vehicles without any changes.
