GPS Rover Completed
I just completed my GPS rover and successfully tested it in the street. It drove swiftly and accurately. The GitHub page explains how the project works and includes both the arduino and processing programs (http://bobulisk.github.com/GPS-Guided-Rover/). Pictures and the schematic are also available there.
The compass module adds precision to the rover. Before every movement, the rover checks its current heading and will only drive if on course. I added a ring of LEDs to display the target heading; upon startup, they play a short animation.
A final video of my project will soon be available on BlueStampEngineering’s Youtube channel.
I thoroughly enjoyed my summer at Blue Stamp and am grateful for the incredible help I received.
