Abstract: This whole study helps us in implementing and making an obstacle avoidance car. This robot is a mobile platform robot that navigates through each and every designated waypoints while trying to avoid any obstruction which comes in the way of the vehicle. We can move the vehicle from one point to another with the help of designated waypoints. This car is based on commonly used RC cars and are made with some modifications and advancements. We can do potential future enhancements by adding a SD card for logging GPS track. We can also add a camera for taking photos and videos. The arduino board acts as a controller which help us to control the speed and change the speed. It also controls the steering of the car to achieve automatic obstacle avoidance. The vehicle’s speed is controlled with the help of pulse wave modulation (PWM) provided to us by the Motor shield. GPS helps us in providing global coordinates of the current location that where the vehicle is present in real time and it also tell us that where that vehicle is heading towards. With the combination of hardware and software we can easily navigate the vehicle and guide it towards right direction.
