  • Programmer Makes Self-driving Toy Car Powered By Raspberry Pi, Arduino, Python

    On his blog, Zheng explains that the complete system consists of three parts: the input unit, processing unit and the RC car control unit.

    The processing unit receives the video data from Raspberry Pi and it’s converted to gray scale and decoded into numpy arrays. Zheng further explains the other jobs performed in the processing unit — “OpenCV Python neural network training and prediction (steering), object detection (stop sign and traffic light), distance measurement (monocular vision), and sending instructions to Arduino through USB connection.”
