Autonomous Car

Introduction Let us begin with one key observation: cars are cool.   From consumer transportation to manufacturing to childrens' toys, vehicles in their many forms are some of today's most influential machines.   Autonomous vehicles are already in use in many manufacturing facilities, and they are also sold as toys.   Perhaps one day, the world's highways will be filled with cars requiring no user intervent ...

Safety-sensor vehicle using Mega163

Introduction cars and vehicles have been integrated into society as one of the most efficient, easiest, accessible means of transportation available. But while it is a convenient and common means of transportation, it is also an incredibly dangerous mode of transport. Thousands of people die in automobile accidents each year, whether it is a collision with another vehicle or a stationary object. [caption id ...

EE476 – Final Project Hummer RC Truck

Introduction: For our final project, we decided to enhance the controls of a Hummer RC truck. Our main objective was to demonstrate that an Atmel microcontroller together with basic hardware building blocks can replace all of the car's original circuitry. Improving the RC truck's handling involved adding analog control over steering and speed. The original construction of the car hindered this idea and forc ...

Autonomous Vehicle

INTRODUCTION As technology develops, computers are making people's lives progressively easier and safer. Someday they will be able to drive automobiles, resulting in reduced deaths and accidents. We decided to make a prototype of a self controlled car. We started with a Hot Shot II radio control car and stripped out the radio receiver. Then we gained complete control over the drive and steering servos, allo ...

Clifford Systems JI1000 Car Alarm System

Introduction The design philosophy behind the JI1000 is a simple, yet powerful microcontroller based mobile security system. At the heart of the JI1000 is the Atmel AT90S4414 8-bit RISC microcontroller. We used the 4414 for this design because a microcontroller is well-suited for a security system. The basic control functions for our system include monitoring inputs (such as sensors, push buttons, etc) and ...

RC Car Controller Using Atmel 4414 chip

Overview: We decided to build transmitter and receiver modules for a radio-controlled (RC) car, as well as implement variable-speed motor control and a continuous steering function.  The simple speed controls included in most RC kits seldom offer more than three forward speeds and one reverse speed; furthermore, steering controls in most “Radio Shack” toys only offer binary steering: Either the car is turni ...

Power Your Arduino From Your Car

The Arduino -- and AVRs in general -- have a wide range of power supply options ranging from around 1.8V to 5.5V. The choice of voltage is usually determined by the desired clock speed or power consumption requirements. The Arduino and its many variants have power jacks that allow connections from big, clunky "wall warts." Alternatively, some boards can get their power from external power supply pins, eithe ...
