Winter 2019 Team 1

Team Members

  • Michael Cornejo, 5th year Physics student
  • Stephen Cotton, 4th year ECE student
  • Jared Blaine, Master student in ECE
  • Laura Morejón Ramírez, 3rd year Aerospace Engineering student


Team 1's main goals were to build an autonomous, 1/10 scale vehicle that could reliably drive on two different pre-designed tracks as well as respond to a collection of commands received through voice recognition.

Our Car: Donkey

Using the provided DonkeyCar framework, and training our car


Autonomy Kit

Our Project: Voice Recognition Using Alexa SDK

Although our project idea was inspired by 2018SpringTeam6, we did some research and found out an easier way to make our Donkey Car succesfuly recognize commands: using Amazon's existing voice recognition software, we were able to organize our commands into categories, called intents, and give the program different potential commands, or uterances.
