Welcome to my Fab Academy site¶
My final project will be creating a robot car that can map out a room and upload the map to a web site. I will map out the room by tracking the position of the car and by usign a distance sensor. To track the position of the car, I will use math to determine the position and angle from the motor movements instead of using a gyroscope.
I will use an arduino to control the motors and distance sensor, and a rasperri pi to process the data and upload it to a web server. I will 3d print and/or laser cut the car body. I think the most difficult part of this project will be the software and equations I will use to track the movement of the car because there are a lot of equations that I have to write, and I will have to account for slippage of the wheels as well.
