Project Introduction

One of the things that we noticed with the Donkey car and ROS car, that would be a major problem for an actual passenger vehicle is the lack of object avoidance or the ability to stop during emergencies. While more expensive sensors exist for implementing object avoidance, like LIDAR, we thought that less expensive solutions could be made. For implementing object avoidance on our car, we chose to go with the inexpensive HC-SRC04 Ultrasonic Sensor.
