  1. Status Report #4Wireless GPS-Navigated Autonomous RC Vehicle Prepared for: August Allo Department of Electrical Engineering University of Texas at San Antonio Prepared by Design Group 8: Brendon Balouch Vernal Garcia Brian Gonzalez Kim Pham February 26, 2007 Purpose: To implement a fastest route algorithm in a GPS enabled vehicle.

  2. Overall Need: Design a wireless rc vehicle, that is capable of autonomous path following via GPS. • Project Milestones: • Establish communication between GPS and microprocessor • Write our fastest route algorithm. • Integrate all pieces into a single package

  3. Task Completions • SIRF binary data instead of GPS NMEA encoded messages • added a diagnostics menu • GPS coordinates will now use XYZ Cartesian geodetic coordinates • Steering control circuit • PWM speed control circuit

  4. Task Completion Dates • PWM Speed Control • February 23, 2007 • H-Bridge Steering Control • February 23, 2007

  5. Upcoming Tasks • Path following algorithm • Programming of processor to support peripheral devices • Parts: • Magnetometer

  6. Upcoming Task Completion Dates • Path following algorithm • March 10, 2007 • Magnetometer • ??? • Project Synergy • April 15, 2007
