Vehicle Prototype

Introduction

This project aims to design a costumed BLDC motor controller for a Raspberry Pi-Powered Autonomous Research Vehicle. The vehicle was created for a Capstone Design Project in Fall, 2016. The initial goal for last year’s project was to design such a platform that future students could research on autonomous vehicle related problems in the form of a miniature autonomous vehicle. This semester’s project continues the initial goal and further improves the vehicle’s performance and functionality.
