  4. GPS-Guided Autonomous Vehicle Project Summary The goal of this project is to design and build a vehicle that will be able to navigate from one location on Bradley University's campus to another along the sidewalks without human intervention.  In order to do this we have decided to implement a global positioning system (GPS) as the means by which the vehicle will know its position. Heading from a digital compass will be used in conjunction with position information from the GPS receiver to steer the vehicle.

  5. GPS-Guided Autonomous Vehicle Project Goals • Integrate a control system on a self-propelled vehicle utilizing GPS • Implement all controls using a low-cost microprocessor and GPS receiver

  6. WHAT IS GPS?

  7. GDOP (Geometric Dilution Of Precision) Components: PDOP = Position Dilution of Precision (3-D). HDOP = Horizontal Dilution of Precision (Latitude, Longitude). VDOP = Vertical Dilution of Precision (Height). TDOP = Time Dilution of Precision (Time). .

  10. GPS-Guided Autonomous Vehicle GPS Module • Problems With Differential GPS • Accuracy was not improved, and sometimes even reduced • Correction signal is transmitted over a range that adds error. ( 1m error for every 100 km (62 miles) ) • Maximum broadcast range = 450 km (280 miles) • Signal latency can be as great as 3 to 5 seconds • Correction signal and receiver signal are determined by different clusters

  11. GPS-Guided Autonomous Vehicle The Solution • Dead-Reckoning • Uses a digital compass to account for the errors of GPS. • Normally used while satellites are not visible. • We are incorporating this concept by using the compass to control the steering.

  28. GPS-Guided Autonomous Vehicle Software System Description • Steering Control • Sends control signal to actuator to steer towards the desired heading. • Limited to 5 mm of actuator movement per 1 second cycle. (About 3 deg.)

  29. GPS-Guided Autonomous Vehicle Software System Description • Drive Control • Begins with an 40% (fast) duty cycle to overcome initial vehicle inertia. • Maintains a constant duty cycle of 30% (slow) at 100Hz over the course of travel to the motors giving a speed of approximately 1 mph.

  30. GPS-Guided Autonomous Vehicle Software Function • Modes of Operation • Diagnostic Mode • 2 Speed Controls • (fast) and (slow) • Manual Steering Controls Through the 80535 • left and right (5 mm actuator increments) • AutonomousMode • Automatic Speed Control • larger duty cycle to overcome inertia, then slower velocity • Automatic Steering Control • based on digital compass error signal • Automatic Break With GPS Coordinates
