New objectives

  • Build a costumed motor controller:
    • Convert Sensorless motor into Sensored motor.
    • Design a motor control and power system.
    • Interface the motor controller with the raspberry pi.
    • Fabricate a breakout board integrate motor controllers, sensors, and connectors.
  • Improve sensors’ performance
    • Use an Arduino compatible board to read sensor data

Original Objectives that still apply for this project

  • Autonomous: Perform a task from start to finish without human interference.
  • Wireless: Operate without any physical connections to elements not on the vehicle, such as power sockets or non-wireless internet connections.
  • Scalable: Have capabilities for research beyond current semester.
  • Repeatable: Include a procedure for the creation of additional vehicles for future research.
