AME 3623: Project 8: Lateral Velocity Control

For the last two projects, you have developed the proportional error and derivative error control pieces. In this project, we bring these two pieces together and tune the parameters so that the craft will orient to and stay at a goal orientation.

At the end of this project, you should be able to:

Component 1: Hardware

There are no new hardware components for this project. However, we are assuming that orientation control is working well and that you have your cameras working properly.

Component 2: Software

Implement the following functionality:

Component 3: Looking Forward

In class, we will be discussing the implementation of FSMs in C code. For project 9, we will move the sequencing code to a fsm_task. For this project, you may take this step preemptively.

For project 9, we will be using the distance sensors. We recommend that you mount one pointed forward and the other pointed to either the left or right. We will be providing new distance sensor mounts that will allow you to mount the sensors on the front of your hovercrafts.

What to Hand In

All components of the project are due by Thursday, April 20th at 9:00 am.


Personal programming credit: Group grade distribution:

Group Grading Rubric

Grades for individuals will be based on the group grade, but weighted by the assessed contributions of the group members to the non-personal programming items.
