We wanted to test the upper limits of what was possible at a hackathon. Inspired by the trend in autonomous vehicles, we decided we wanted to create a self-driving car in 36 hours. It was a stretch, a dream, a moonshot but we were willing to put in the effort and try to pull this off. We fell short of this goal. We have a PowerWheels car that can turn and drive programatically. We have a ton of computer vision. But we lack integration and did not have time to debug, as well as lacking necessary hardware. The car is a wobbly mess of wires, but it works, kind of. We aimed for the stars, but crashed and burned. In the end, at least we learned a lot.
What it does
It can drive autonomously based on an Arduino program.
