This project provides guidance on how to build an autonomous 2WD (two wheel dirve) robot. The robot is equipped with a Raspberry Pi 4 B running ROS melodic, attached sensors and an actuator to let the robot drive autonomously to a desired location. To find its way around it uses a camera and an ultrasonic sensor to avoid obstacles. The project is split into multiple parts, to adress the following main aspects of the robot.

  • Part list and assembly of the robot platform and the components.
  • Raspberry Pi 4 B setup using ROS melodic, which will be the brain of the robot.
  • System integration: combining the components.

The menu on the left shows this outline again.
