Ground-Based Robotic Vehicle Following and Separation Control: An Image Processing Approach

Security icon, disabled. A blue padlock, locked.

This research project focuses on developing algorithms that allow for a ground-based tracker vehicle to track another ground vehicle with precise spacing control. The vehicle is outfitted with a camera to allow for image-processing based control, using algorithms written with python and OpenCV. The vehicle is also outfitted with other sensors to aid the camera with spacing and control, and it has a solar powered backup source for when the main battery pack is depleted. The research project establishes some useful algorithms and provides as a very strong foundation for future work.
