Autonomous RC Car Engineering Society Project – Using Computer Vision

Project Overview

Design a working rc car which incorporates a computer e.g raspberry pi / mobile phone that can stream the data to a separate computer (for image analysis ) alternatively the processing can be done on the pi once it has learned.

Using OpenCV neural network and haar-cascade classifiers train the car to recognise road signs and traffic light.

Perform function:

  • Obey Traffic Lights
  • Obey Road Signs
  • Self parallel park with help from other sensors and video feed.
  • Emergency braking & Object avoidance.
  • Follow a road


Update : 2018

The project has been abandoned after I have left the engineering society to attend my placement year. Hopefully it can be picked up from where it was left from by the future group members.
