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.

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. RoboCar 1/10 is used in educational institution including universities, research and development of Autonomous Driving and driving support technology of automobile / parts manufacturers, research and development of autonomous mobile technology in construction machines · agricultural machines · mobile robots, and themes related to them.

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.
Through the provision of an Autonomous Driving development platform and support for demonstration experiments, ZMP will continue to contribute to the improvement of Autonomous Driving technology.
