Autonomous, Line-Tracking Racecar Project



This project involved the design, construction, and testing of an autonomous, microcomputer-controlled, robotic, line-tracking racecar.  The racecar used infrared sensors to detect and follow a line on the floor at the highest possible speed.  Both engineering majors and computer science majors were on the design teams.  The project resulted in a senior thesis.  The project was part of Physics 438, Senior Capstone Engineering Design, taught by Dr. Hiemcke and Dr. Mosiman in the fall of 1998.  Depicted is a robotic car made almost entirely of Lego parts.
