Road Detection Algorithm for Autonomous Path Following (SAIC)
Bloom, Benjamin Clayton, William Foss, Michael King, Kathleen
The goal of this project was to test a road detection algorithm for autonomous path following. Testing was conducted on a retrofitted ATV that SAIC provided to Olin for testing. The first semester of the project was spent developing the test software and preparing the ATV for testing. In the spring, students integrated the software and ATV hardware and conducted tests on the autonomous vehicle test track. Throughout this project students gained experience at refurbishing and maintaining hardware, developing infrastructure for testing, optimizing software, developing new algorithms, system integration and calibration, debugging, testing and evaluation.
