In the span of 3 months, The Titans, a group of 9 graduate Computer Engineering students at SJSU, designed, built, and wrote the software for an autonomous electric RC car as the term project for the class cmpe243.
It has obstacle avoidance, speed control, GPS and compass guided navigation, and Bluetooth interface with the Titans Android App, which allows the user to enter a destination, download a route to the car and start navigation, as well as monitor the car's location at any given time.
Press 'Go', and the car simply goes there, navigating between buildings and avoiding pedestrians or any obstacles along the way.
We replaced the stock electronics on a Traxxas RC car with our own, along with all necessary PCBs and sensors.

Self-Driving R/C Cars Built on TensorFlow Self Driving RC Car Project - Computer 1 year ago   03:17

Otavio and Will were showing off their autonomous vehicles at Maker Faire. These are not the self-driving cars you get around town in, they're RC vehicles that are inexpensive to experiment with.

Otavio talks us through some test race footage and Will tells us about the Donkey Car you can build for about $200 in parts if you want to give autonomous RC a try.
