For this year's project, we will be developing a control system for a hovercraft. Our new hovercraft consists of a vertically-oriented ducted fan for lift and braking, and three lateral ducted fans for heading control. The craft is equipped with a compass for absolute heading sensing, a rate gyroscope, three cameras for lateral velocity sensing and multiple 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.
