Autonomous cars or robot cars have been on the agenda ever since Hollywood started with their Sci-Fi genre, maybe even before that. A lo tof things have happened since then and now the self-driving vehicle is not far away. In this project, the Autonomous car with microcontroller and ultrasonic sensors, we are looking at a way of making a small, regular RC car autonomous with relatively simple means and investigate how the big companies does it to learn more aboutt he development of the autonomous cars and their technology.
We used an Arduino Uno R3 supplemented with an Arduino Motor Shield R3 as our microcontroller board and three HCSR04 ultrasonic sensors. By removing almost all of the old parts of the RC car, except the two DC motors, and replacing them with these new parts we managed to make a vehicle that drove around in a room without crashing into anything. We could have used entirely different sensors, or supplemented the existing setup with other sensors to make it even more accurate and obstacle avoiding. But for our purpose the three ultrasonic sensors did the job. There is always place for optimizing in projects like this one, in our case we could have been optimizing our code more, to make thec ar perform even better.
