The goal of the Autonomous Golf Cart Project is to retrofit a golf cart with all the sensors and motors to create an autonomous golf cart which can drive around campus. The golf cart is equipped with a LIDAR, stereoscopic camers, sonar rangefinders, GPS, hall effect sensors, and other sensors
We will spend as many years as it takes to make this golf cart acquire and deliver pizza to the Cal Poly Robotics Club room for our weekly Saturday lunch.
- Retrofit the golf cart to be able to drive between two points on campus autonomously, avoiding obstacles as necessary and using a reliable pathfinding algorithm.
- Ideally, the golf cart will be able to navigate between the robotics club room and the nearest source of pizza.
