The rally car of the future is a robot that drives itself. The researchers from Georgia Tech uses an RC truck, ROS, and the NVIDIA graphics board to build a mini rally robot car that teaches itself to powerslide.
The code is open-source and ROS compatible. They use GitHub to host the source code and instructions. You can download the files from here.
- The robots can learn to choose the better path.
- The robot can drive aggressively and safe at the same time.
- Rally drivers become obsolete.
- Taking a seat in a self-driving sports car will not be boring anymore.
