DARPA
Magnet-Magnetometer-Based Lateral
 Guidance

The Project

Autonomous car
Uses existing infrastructure
Collision detection
Follows general traffic rules

Implementation

Hardware
       Rangefinder
       CMUcam
       Magnetometer
       Handy Board
       RC car

Feasibility

Seems doable!
Partially-implemented in California
Handy Board can be coded in C
Many areas to cut complexity and scope if
 needed

Mini-Project

Interface with rangefinder
       Operate a motor
       Slow down motor as distance to rangefinder
        decreases
       Use Handy Board for logic
