About This Activity

In 2012, a Toyota Prius was the first vehicle to be issued a license to drive without a driver. To date, more than 1,000,000 kms have been driven by Google’s autonomous cars across North America. Other car companies have since joined them. While recent surveys indicate that only one in five drivers would consider purchasing an autonomous automobile, some believe that this may be the car of the future. In this course, students explore the major electronic systems involved in vehicle control. The electronic control unit is discussed in terms of its role in anti-lock braking, traction control, and electronic stability control systems. The role of sensors and the collection of telemetry data in understanding a vehicle’s state will be an ongoing topic of discussion. Remote motor control systems will be described and implemented by students. Students will learn various mathematical and computational methods to further understand these systems. Using Arduino, they will employ their understanding to build a working model of an independent suspension, remotely controlled vehicle.
