For SURP 2021’s Week 6, I incorporated IMU and Lidar sensors to the car with a tank-drive system. Currently, the Lidar acts as an obstacle detection at the front of the car wherein it would stop when it detects an object less than 130mm. For the IMU, it only shows the yaw values in degrees using the...

In the past few days, I have been working on integrating the visual processing work I have been doing with the work the rest of the Arnhold team has done so far. AprilTags will be integral to our demonstration next week, so I have been trying to determine the ideal resolution where the most area on...

Yesterday, Jill and I were able to successfully integrate the mesh network with three of her paper cars. We were testing the ability to send instructions to multiple vehicles over the network. Since our 433 MHz packet radios in tests would send messages within three milliseconds and the painlessMesh...

I'm still testing the property of different motor + propellers combination. Right now, since I also got the requirement from the AR blimp, I'll add one more test on to my previous experiments. The current experiment setup: So the properties of motor + propellers that I will cover in my exper...

I've had several flying tests this week to see how does feather board esp32 performs. Before I started the flying test, I need to configure the motor setup using inputs commands: The flying test of moving forward: an other angle of view: So this phenomenon(The forward motor completely...

I've finished the code that could by changing the input commands to get the correct FBUDLR(forward/backward/up/down/left/right) motor outputs: Use case: how to get the correct motor outputs after someone rewire the hardware The code is now in the github

This week, I've collected the green ball data with distance from two different scenarios: 1) Lab background 2) Conference room background The green ball data is constructed in the following tree structure: distance experiment |___background1 |___1280_1080 | 'time_Experime...

Over the last few days, I took some time formatting and labelling the newly obtained images of the ball at different distances from the camera. Following this, I passed the bounding box information through a regression model to detect the relation between the size of the bounding box (relative to th...
