Team 5: Charging On The Go


Team Members

  • Andrew Hallett, MAE
  • Juan SanJuan, ECE

Project Overview

Concept Inspiration:

  • We were inspired by in-flight refueling of aircraft. Taking this concept and applying it to electric autonomous vehicles we could potentially recharge vehicles out on the road without them needing to slow down or stop from their current task. In this project we explore methods of autonomous driving and tracking while the recharging concept is only visualized through an augmented reality overlay on the back of the low power state car. If we were to explore the charging method in another project we thought about ways of doing this through cable connections, inductive charging, or regenerative braking.


  • Build 2 autonomous vehicles
  • Implement autonomous driving using ROS2
  • Implement a tracking solution to identify the low power state car
  • Used the tracking solution to update the steering and throttle controls
  • Simulate recharging through a visual representation
