ARGO Drive-By-Wire

Sam Friends, Mechatronics, Outdoors 2 Comments

After weeks of building, prototyping, debugging, and hair-pulling we were able to drive the ARGO by remote control successfully.
5V-Check. 12V-Check. CCU-Check. AX-Check. Throttle-Check. Left -Check. Right-Check. Brakes-Check. Ignition.

The first time starting up outside. We just pushed the ARGO in between two buildings and told other students to watch out.

There were some hitches, we had limited the speed of the ARGO to avoid any unpleasant consequences.

Steering actuator error! Standby crew goes in for the rescue.

End of the day, we celebrated with coffee and pastries from the C&D!

A video of the beast in action.
