Title: DESIGN AND IMPLEMENTATION OF A SELF DRIVING VEHICLE
Author: ABDALLA, MOHAMED
Abstract: The rapid advancement in technology made human life better, the human force was replaced by automatic machines to increase the productivity and reduce the risks. Due to this the car industries was developed and the numbers of cars increased. Years later, the cars accidents became a very common sight, and many lives have been lost. From the invention of cars until these days, driving was restricted to regular users who don’t suffer from any kind of disabilities. All these problems have guided the people to insert new technologies in the car industry and so self-driving vehicles produced. Although the self-driving vehicles didn’t come to markets yet, but they have been tested in many countries and a very good result have been achieved. The aim of this project is to design a self-driving vehicle with the ability to drive itself from one place to another without a human intervention. A map that represents the surrounding areas will be available for the user in the computer screen, the user will be able to select his final destination by using a computer mouse, and then the system will find the shortest path to this destination. Finally it will start to control the movement of the car by sending the control commands to the car system. The system will also have the ability to monitor the location of the car continuously and to represent it on the map, so the user can determine his current location at any time. The project aims have been met successfully and the system was designed and implemented. The system was tested and the results were good; however some limitations were discovered and should be eliminated in the future.
