【Introduction of RoboCar MV 2 application case】 Fukui National College of Technology
RoboCar MV 2 (upper) and experimental situation (lower) introduced to Fukui National College of Technology
At Fukui National College of Technology, Department of Electrical and Electronic Engineering, which is focused on energy, optical and electronic devices, communication and electronics, information and control. In order to acquire skills,we learn the basic subjects specialized in mathematics, physics, electric / electronic engineering, information processing etc, and graduation research belongs to the laboratory for one year. In the Department of Information Logic Laboratory of the same department, focusing on the number of accidents in the parking lot.We are advancing research on remote control electric cars using smart phones to reduce accidents by remotely operating while checking the surroundings of the vehicle .
In this research, RoboCar MV 2, an electric vehicle platform capable of experimenting in a compact space, is utilized. We started research with the remote control by the driving controller fixed to the desk, and now we are conducting research on operation methods using smartphones that are close to us without the restriction of place by communication, assuming daily operation. We create a dedicated smartphone application, and we are building a system that can control the steering and back and forth movement of the vehicle by operations such as rotation and inclination of the mobile phone. Professor Akio Maruyama , Associate Professor at the same laboratory explained about the purpose of using RoboCar MV 2, " We are aiming to Realize an intuitive and practical operation method by operating the electric car by actually operating the smartphone, not the simulation screen.
