Introduction: GPS Guided Autonomous Rover

For a group Project we were required to build a Rover that would follow a predetermined track using GPS coordinates. Extensive details are listed in the report attached at the bottom of the page.

This document provides the development and implementation of a GPS (Global Positioning System) guided rover. The rover is to compete in a race on a pre-defined track consisting of vertices made up of GPS coordinates. The design is comprised of a perspex base, battery pack, servo motors, Ublox GPS module and an ATMega328 Arduino microcontroller. The microcontroller receives the input from the GPS module in string format through serial communication. This data is then sent through our path finding algorithm and the direction is calculated. The rover runs through the course with minor mishaps. Improvement recommendations include alternate algorithms and additional sensors.
