Nagoya University Future Society Creation Organization Mobility Area Utilization for Human Resource Development
Below, we introduce case examples of user introduction of Autonomous Driving development platform RoboCar® 1/10.
A state of practical training with RoboCar® 1/10 introduced in advanced mobility studies
In the mobility field Nagoya University Future Society Creation Organization, are pursuing research and human resource development aiming to realize green innovation on safe and secure transportation systems and systems with minimal environmental impact. In advanced mobility studies established since fiscal 2017, RoboCar® 1/10 is used as a teaching material to learn next-generation mobility design, and students are actually practicing to touch objects, think and practice. In practical training, we will learn the control of the vehicle from the outline of the Autonomous Driving car, the image processing using the camera, and finally the contest of Autonomous Driving control will be done. We aim to improve students' ability to solve problems by building control systems from Autonomous Driving control, implementing actual control using miniature cars.
About Autonomous Driving development platform RoboCar® 1/10
RoboCar® 1/10 is a 1/10 size automobile research and development platform of a real vehicle that can carry out computer control with various sensors. The included software development environment (SDK) contains an API (Application Programming Interface) and sample programs that are necessary for controlling RoboCar® and the user can control the vehicle with its own program.
Various options and packages are also available to respond to a wider range of R & D and training needs. "Front and rear laser range sensor set" equipped with laser sensors in front and behind to grasp the situation around the vehicle in a wide range, a dedicated PC for remote control, a Wi-Fi router, and a steering controller for remote control experiment customers. There is "RoboCar® 1/10 MATLAB connection 2017" which added "RoboCar® 1/10 remote operation package", a library for connecting MATLAB and RoboCar® 1/10 2016 and a vehicle model for route design.
