CAD2CAV: Computer Aided Design for Cooperative Autonomous Vehicles
CAD2CAV is a project focusing on multi-agent exploration in unknown environments. It attempts to build a complete system from perception to planning and control, exploring a designated unknown environments with multiple autonomous vehicles. It is built in xLab at the University of Pennsylvania, on multiple F1TENTH race cars. Useful documents: GitHub link Spring 2021 Final Report (not complete) Demo This is a sample scenario of a single F1TENTH race car exploring the 2nd floor of Levine Hall at the University of Pennsylvania, right outside xLab.
SLAM — Simultaneous Localization And Mapping
Simultaneous Localization And Mapping, also known as SLAM, is a set of very important techniques in robotics, and it’s still in active research. It aims at developing different algorithms for figuring out the position of the robot in the real world by the robot itself.
