Story

Our project's purpose is to create an autonomous car which is able to complete a specific track without human help. This project was proposed by a teacher in our Engineering school, we have found this really interesting and think that it could be really enjoyable for us to participate to the NXP Cup. How does it work ? It is really easy, by using camera put at the top of the car, the vehicle is able to see the border of the circuit and try to stay on the road. Currently, we are working on the development of basic modules like going straight and also programming the camera to receive the right informations and  make these informations useful. When this basic module will be ready, our next goal will be to adapt the speed of the car and  make it able to avoid obstacle. We don't forget that our main aim is to finish the imposed track as fast as possible !
