RoboCar 1/10, one-tenth size of actual vehicle​ ​

RoboCar 1/10


It is the latest model of the RoboCar® 1/10 series which has been well received by automobile parts manufacturers, universities and research and educational institutions since its launch in 2009.
Development of on-board development, expansion of disk capacity, latest WiFi compatibility, and other development environments are enhanced compared with conventional products, making smoother R & D and experiments possible. Monocular camera (1 unit), infrared sensor (8 units) and laser range sensor (at most 2 units,with option) are installed as external sensors. It can be used for sensing around the vehicle. Moreover, by installing acceleration · gyro sensor, encoder (wheel: 4 units), (motor: 1 unit), (steering: 1 unit), it is possible to grasp the behavior and mileage of the vehicle.
In the development environment, libraries such as acquisition of various sensor information, speed / steering angle control, communication, etc. are available.
With these libraries, customers are free to develop applications.
It can be utilized in research and development such as autonomous driving, remote control, sensing.

· It is possible to experiment indoors by 1/10 scale of actual vehicle.
· Camera, infrared sensor, laser range sensor (option) installed.
· Customers can develop applications independently using development environment.
. Provide a sample program such as obstacle avoidance.
· The development environment is enhanced (below) compared with conventional products, and more efficient and smooth development possible.
. Connect console, mouse and keyboard directly to the vehicle body, and enable on-board development with GUI.
· Increase the disk capacity to SSD 64GB. Easy storage of image data etc during experiment.
· Support for general development environment (Linux (Ubuntu), C ++, OpenCV) to improve development efficiency.
· AC power supply during development, battery use when running, and power can be switched while the system is running.
· It corresponds to the latest WiFi (802.11 ac). Reduce constraints on communication environment during experiment.

Optional product

RoboCar 1/10 Remote control package

We started selling "RoboCar 1/10 Remote Operation Package" which can be remotely controlled using a controller under wireless communication environment to the experimental vehicle RoboCar 1/10 of an automobile 1/10 scale.

This product is based on the 1/10 scale robot car "RoboCar 1/10" of the car, with a dedicated PC, a Wi - Fi router, a steering controller set, and a remote unlimited (level 4) Equipped with operation technology, it is a product that enables R & D immediately after purchase under wireless environment. The above "RoboCar 1/10" is equipped with a monocular camera, an infrared sensor, a laser range sensor as an external sensor on a 1/10 scale car of an automobile, grasps the behavior of the vehicle and the traveling distance by the acceleration / gyro sensor and the encoder Can. In addition, libraries such as acquisition of various sensor information for autonomous driving development, control of speed / steering angle, communication, etc. are prepared. It is also possible for customers to freely develop applications using these libraries.

RoboCar 1/10 MATLAB connection

With this option, you can design a route from RoboCar 1/10 to any position and orientation from the current position using the MATLAB / Simulink program. For example, in the case of research and development of autonomous driving such as automatic parking, lane change, obstacle avoidance, etc., a route that is optimal (smooth steering operation and little lateral G) according to the position and orientation of the target is calculated and the vehicle two-wheel model is used to estimate the steering angle using MATLAB / Simulink.

Simulation can be performed on MATLAB / Simulink based on this steering angle, it is possible to compare the planned route with the simulation result and to control the route based on the difference. Since the same MATLAB / Simulink program allows the actual machine of RoboCar 1/10 to operate, it is possible to efficiently perform experiments using sensor data in simulation and real environments.

* MATLAB connection option does not correspond to RealTime Workshop.
