CN06_02.jpg

Hi! Kaeru no Ojisan is back with Car No.06.


Car No.06 is a Programmed Automatic Driving Car with following procedure;

- Simulate the Car Trajectory based on the Target Passing Points.

- Drive automatically as simulated using Reflective Photosensor and Gyro Sensor .

- Adjust Car Position to the starting point using Web Camera, after coming back adjacent to the starting point.


Car No.06 is composed of 4-Wheel-Steering chassis, R/C Car body and Car Top PC with 4 Arduinos and Web Camera.

 

I made an explanation video.

Please watch it in full screen mode! And Car No.06 test run one is followed.
I have succeeded up to 18 rounds in Car No.05 Altered (Yogurt Version). Please watch this.
 

Note:
This explanation video is made using Car No.05 data. The detail values and figures in the video might be different from Car No.06 ones.

This is EXTRA cool because it's on a MINI! ;)

I think the author/ developer should mold a Mr Bean sitting on a chair and use it to cover up the electronics. Not saying the setup looks bad, I just think it would suit the vehicle chose.
Seriously a very cool project.

Thank you for your comment.
I have realized this car top PC(170mm x 170mm) is too big for Rover MINI.
But it will fit to Tractor Truck and I am working to apply to apply this system.

Hi! Thanks!
I LOVE Rover Mini too.
It matches to my small room.
But I am now considering to apply this system to Tractor Truck and SUV;
