background
Background
  • Remote Controlled Toy Hummer
  • UGV – Unmanned Ground Vehicle
    • Military operations
    • Gather information about environment
    • User can control/observe situations from a distance
    • User can analyze the data from the UGV to create a well planned entry and exit strategy

testing implementation implementation problems
Testing/ImplementationImplementation Problems
  • Control API
    • Onboard PC containing software control interface (Control API) interfaced to a Microcontroller through RS-232. Microcontroller is interfaced to vehicle motors via an H-Bridge and to steering servo via microcontroller PWM output.
  • Remote Control
    • Onboard PC supporting WIFI. PC runs server software allowing client software on remote PCs to connect and access the features of the Control API.

Testing/ImplementationImplementation Problems
  • Odometry
    • Optical Mouse
  • Mapping Physical Environment
    • Sonic Rangefinders
  • Automation
    • Onboard PC server software with added automation wrapper for the Control API with features accessible to connected client software.
