PIXAM embarked on a journey to designing and build an unmanned ground vehicle (UGV).
The crew @pixa, to make this happen are working on several tasks inlcuding:
Define the problem and requirements: Start by defining the problem that you want to solve with the UGV, and what you expect it to do. This will help you determine the requirements for the vehicle, including its size, weight, mobility, payload capacity, and communication capabilities.
Choose the right platform: Select an appropriate platform for your UGV based on your requirements. You can either build a custom platform from scratch or modify an existing platform to meet your specific needs.
Select the sensors and systems: Choose the sensors and systems that you will need for your UGV, including cameras, LiDARs, GPS, and other navigation sensors. It is important to consider the performance and reliability of these systems and to ensure that they will work together seamlessly.
Design the vehicle: Design the physical structure of the UGV, including its chassis, wheels, and other components. Ensure that the design is sturdy, lightweight, and capable of accommodating the sensors and systems that you have selected.
Program the vehicle: Develop the software that will run on the UGV, including the algorithms for autonomous navigation, obstacle detection and avoidance, and other control systems. Test the software thoroughly to ensure that it is working correctly and is able to perform its tasks.
Assemble and test the vehicle: Assemble the UGV, install the sensors and systems, and test it in a controlled environment. Ensure that the vehicle is working correctly and is able to perform its tasks.
Deploy and monitor: Deploy the UGV in the field and monitor its performance. Make any necessary adjustments to improve its performance and reliability.
