Creating a self-driving car with on-the-edge ML


Project WOMBAT (Working On Machine Based Autonomous Transport) is a state of the art self-driving platform in continuous development. I extensively modified a kid’s ride-on toy Mini Cooper with custom motor circuitry, steering feedback, remote controls, and 3D printed parts. Two camera systems on the front handle depth mapping and localization. A hardware machine learning accelerator enables real-time object detection and avoidance without any internet connection.

Watch the reveal.
