Company / App Name: TPRLab
What does it do?
This is a robot DIY kit to learn self-driving technics.
The kit is based on open source hardware (Raspberry Pi) and software(everything published on GitHub).
It saves time and gives a real vehicle for people who learn self-driving cars.
Why do we need it?
People who learn autonomous vehicles do not have access to real cars and have to use simulators. A small real vehicle with software for computer vision and neural networks would make their experience more consistent.
Who is it for?
Students of self-driving cars and hobbyists.
What makes it stand out from the crowd?
Not basic (Raspberry Pi provides a lot of abilities).
Not complicated (firmware and examples are in python and the learning curve is smooth).
Powerful (Tensorflow and OpenCV on board).
Open source (both software and hardware).
The robot is able to follow a line using computer vision, follow a walkway using neural networks, navigate by GPS, avoid obstacles using ultrasonic distance meter…
Can be programmed to solve more complicated tasks of autonomous driving.
