Submission Title

Autonomous Ground Vehicle

Location

Jereld R. Nicholson Library: Grand Avenue

Subject Area

Physics/Applied Physics

Description

WildCat is an autonomous ground vehicle (AGV). AGVs were first developed for military purposes: Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS), Manufacturing, Search and Rescue operations, Mining, etc. WildCat will be entered in the Intelligent Ground Vehicle competition (IGVC) held in June 2016 at Oakland University in Rochester, Michigan. Teams from major universities not only in the U.S., but also India, France, the UK, China, and around the world will be competing.

The IGVC offers a design experience that is at the very cutting edge of engineering education. It is multidisciplinary, theory-based, hands-on, team implemented, and outcome assessed competition. It encompasses the very latest technologies impacting industrial development and taps subjects of high interest to students. The objective of the competition is to challenge students to think creatively as a team about the evolving technologies of vehicle electronic controls, sensors, computer science, robotics, and system integration throughout the design, fabrication, and field testing of autonomous intelligent mobile robots.

The vehicle will compete to: 1) autonomously navigate an outdoor obstacle course as quickly as possible, keeping within the speed limit and reaching all GPS waypoints, 2) complete a course with remote (user) control, and 3) have ingenuity and uniqueness in design.
