The objective of this project is to design and implement performance improvements for WPI's intelligent ground vehicle, Prometheus, leading to a more competitive entry at the Intelligent Ground Vehicle Competition. Performance enhancements implemented by the project team include a new upper chassis design, a reconfigurable camera mount, extended Kalman filter-based localization with a GPS receiver and a compass module, a lane detection algorithm, and a modular software framework. As a result, Prometheus has improved autonomy, accessibility, robustness, reliability, and usability.
