End in sight for the team’s first year developing an autonomous prototype.
The last few months have been all about testing and sharpening for our driverless project.
Since there’s already a way to mimic the messages sent to the motors and generated according to the driver’s foot position, now it’s just a matter of connecting the pc to the car CAN lines, and test the developed code.
Control wise, the team also explored a new path planning algorithm which is now being tested and compared with the already existent one.
As for breakthroughs, the use of neural networks allowed for both perception sensors to estimate color and distance, as opposed to a few months ago where distance estimation was only possible with the LiDAR and color estimation with the camera.
