The following projects can be done as a course project for CDS 101/110. Projects marked as "DGC" are appropriate for use as a project in CS/EE/ME 75.

Active Projects

  • Lateral control in forward and reverse, with gain scheduling (DGC) - Design a controller that matains the lateral position of the vehicle when it is moving either forwards or backwards and schedules the gains based on speed. This requires a rederivation of the dynamics of the vehicle that model the motion when moving backwards and determining how to switch between forward and reverse motion. The specifications for the controller will be based on the needs of the 2007 Urban Challenge.
Team 1
  • Kenny Oslund (75)
  • Christine Perry
  • Mahipal Raythattha
Team 2
  • Lane following (DGC) - Design a controller that uses information about the right and left lane boundaries to remain centered in the middle of the lane. The location of the left and right lane boundaries will eventually be given by a vision system, but for the course project simulated lane boundaries will be used.
Team 1
  • Chris Schantz (75)
  • Johnny Zhang (75)
  • Steve Gray (75)
Team 2
  • Mohamed Ali
  • Gustavo Costa
  • Tom Duong (75 only)
  • Stopping at a line (DGC) - Design a controller that brings the vehicle to a stop within 1 meter of a stop line painted on the ground. The location of the stop line will be a combination of GPS data (when far from the stop line) and vision-based data (when near the stop line).
Team 1
  • Jessica Gonzalez (75)
  • Francisco Zabala (75)
  • Dominic Rizzo
Team 2
  • Sanjeeb Bose
  • MIke Ikeda
  • Harrison Stein
  • Reactive obstacle avoidance (DGC) - Design a controller that uses direct information from a laser range finder (LADAR) to bring the vehicle to a stop and/or swerve to avoid a "pop-up" obstacle. For CS/EE/ME 75 students, this could be a good project for someone on the sensing team.
Team 1
  • Ghyrn Loveness
  • Klimka Szwaykowska
  • Chris Yu
Team 2

Open Projects

  • Looking down a road (DGC) - Design a pointing system that can point a camera down a road to the left or right of a vehicle. The location of the road must be determined based on visual data (could be combined with a EE/CNS 148 project). For CS/EE/ME 75 students, this could be a good project for someone on the sensing team.
