This is the repository of electronics and software for Data Bus and Troubled Child, my autonomous ground vehicles.

  • Troubled Child is a 1986 Jeep Grand Wagoneer that took 1st place in the 2014 Sparkfun AVC.
  • Data Bus is a 1:10 scale RC car that took 3rd place in the 2012 Sparkfun AVC.

The repository contains source code, schematics, board layouts, and documentation. Mostly this is a catch-all for what I worked on in 2010-2014.

  • Current Software - updated versions of the mbed software that handles pose estimation, navigation, and path following
  • Software/ - older mbed software that handles pose estimation, navigation, path following
  • Documentation/ - various supporting documents
  • Hardware/ - various hardware used in building and calibrating
  • Electronics/ - catch-all of circuit/layout designs varying from experiment to tried and tossed

Some of the electronics are now products on Tindie.com and they have their own repositories, shown below.

Rover Products

  • RoverMux tried and true 3 channel R/C Multiplexer
  • RoverBaseboard - a baseboard making it easy to hook up servos and sensors to an mbed/LPCXpresso
