Objective

In previous years, the cars used by groups in this class controlled the motor by sending throttle information only in the form of voltage. This is fine if the battery levels stay the same. However, an issue arises as battery levels increase or decrease. The power being sent by the battery varies and subsequently the speed of the motor varies as well. Our goal is to implement the TritonAI framework as well as their low level hardware and software to train based on velocity rather than throttle.
