I am interested in applying what I am learning in udacity cs373 into building a small autonomous go-cart. I am starting from scratch so there will be electronics, programming, using linux and other open source software, as well as fabrication.
It's a fairly long and involving project. At the minimum it will involve, Learning how to setup and program ROS with arduino.
Design peripheral sensor/control pcb using KiCAD.
Fabrication the pcb using either acid etching or cnc milling.
Designing the cart chassis using open source CAD, ie libreCAD or freeCAD or ???
Building the fixture and welding the go cart chassis
. . . . big section on the go cart mechanical & control . . . .
. . . an even bigger section on automating the go cart . . . .
Anyway, that's the plan and most plans usually don't work. For start, I am interested in interfacing ROS with a small arduino with wheels, something simple that can be fabricated using a laser cutter, that will go around in a circular track mimicking cs373's unit 1 localization exercise. From ROS, I would like to be able to command arduino movement, read the sensor(s) on arduino and plot the probability histogram.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
