The servo motor and USB camera are connected to the autonomous vehicle.
The task builds on the “obstacle detector” (ultrasound distance measurement) and “lane tracker” (proportional controller) from the tasks in the Robotics TXT 4.0 Base Set. Depending on their age and previous level of knowledge, students will need 240-330 minutes to develop the programs needed to solve the programming tasks. The functional principle of a proportional controller should be addressed in instruction in advance.
Highly skilled or older students could be given the experimental tasks (lane departure warning system with P and PD controller). These will take an additional approx. 150-240 minutes to solve.
