Self-driving RC Car - Tobor

This is the main page for a device i am currently developing: an RC car equiped with sensors that make it aware of things like current ambient light, where the road is, object detection, interactive driving (i.e. stoping at traffic lights).

I called it Tobor, not because of the fictional manga character, but because the original idea was to make it as close to a car and different from a Robot as possible (i.e. 4 wheels, 2 turning wheels and not the typical robot-style fixed direction wheels).

In fact, my idea is to create a set of devices that interact with the car or cars.

I plan to start with the electronics and once (if) i succeed, continue with the car aesthetics; if possible, making it with some resemblance to a Tesla Model S.

The prototype uses a Raspberry Pi 2B and an Arduino UNO (for the controller). For the final version i will make a custom PCB with the ATMEGA328P-PU chip for the controller and a shield for the Raspberry Pi 2B.

If you found anything useful enough and you want to thank us for that, please consider donating to people who need it, like the NGO OXFAM. Thank you !
