What challenge/problem are you trying to solve through your application:
In the world of automation, the main challenge is to develop a highly reliable unmanned or autonomous vehicle which is capable of navigating from one desired location to other.
In the field of robotics, this is referred to as Simultaneous Localization and Mapping (SLAM).
The main problems faced are:
We are developing an Intelligent Unmanned Vehicle capable of carrying 10kg of Payload from one GPS location to other GPS location avoiding the obstacles in the course and also follow the lanes.
How does your application solves the above mentioned challenge/problem:
Various applications of Intelligent Ground Vehicle:
We successfully demonstrated a completely autonomous run of our vehicle in an outdoor course of length 700 feet, consisting of randomly placed obstacles, white lanes forming the track and 3 GPS waypoints. Thus completing the challenge presented to us.
Description of Project:
Autonomous cars are a recent widely researched topic in field of artificial intelligence. A lot of progress on this has been made in universities of USA, but not much in India.
To Intelligent Ground Vehicle is an ambitious student project aimed at making an autonomous unmanned ground vehicle capable of manoeuvring in outdoor environment. Given a target GPS point, the vehicle will achieve the goal, avoiding obstacles in the course and keeping itself in its lane. The vehicle weighs around 30 Kg and measures 2ft X 3ft.
The challenge showcases the latest technologies and techniques developed in the field of unmanned transportation system and we are a persistent eye catcher for media and robotics enthusiasts from all over the world.
