2020 Winter Team 2

2020 Winter Team 2 set out to design and create a system that would be capable of navigating autonomously from one GPS location to another while detecting obstacles, recognizing arrows, and maneuvering around the obstacle in the specified direction of the arrow before returning to the GPS that it was on previously. This project builds upon the work of 2018FallTeam3, 2018FallTeam5, and Project GPS.

IMU Overview

The Inertial Measurement Unit (IMU) utilizes accelerometers, magnetometers, and gyroscopes to determine a system’s orientation, acceleration rate, and angular rate when the IMU is installed on the system.

Project Overview The purpose of our project is to utilize an IMU in order to drive in various shapes depending on input received from ultrasonic sensors and


Hardware and Schematics

Electrical Parts: Elegoo Mega 2560 Three Ultrasonic Sensors BNO080 IMU GPS/GLONASS U-blox7 - a USB GPS Jetson

Mechanical Components: Camera Mount Our team went through several iterations of camera mounts before settling on a design that proved to be simple yet efficient. Our camera mount differs from the mounts of other groups in that our mount was not as tall as those of other groups since we did not see a reason for it to be so high. Base Plate We designed the base plate so that it would be both aesthetically pleasing in appearance and versatile in utility. Our drawings and dxf files have been included for use by future groups. Jetson Case We found a 3D model from previous groups that we ended up reusing for our project. This file is linked in our resources section. Ultrasonic Sensor Case We obtained a 3D model for the Ultrasonic Sensor case from an online repository that ended up working well for our needs. This file is linked in our resources section.
