For this year's project, we will be developing a control system for a hovercraft. The hovercraft consists of a vertically-oriented ducted fan for lift and braking, and two rear-facing ducted fans for heading control. The craft is equipped with a compass for absolute heading sensing, an analog rate gyroscope, and two analog distance sensors.
During the course of the semester, we will be developing this system through a sequence of milestone projects. The ultimate goal is for the hovercraft navigate through a sequence of corridors while avoiding obstacles.
