element14 | Self Driving Car (Automatic Lane Detection) (on a Robot)
I wanted to create a quick project that can demonstrate the power of computer vision and its applications in real world. With the advancement in the self driving technology I wanted to create a small scale working model of an actual car inspired by Tesla.
Tesla basically follows lanes on highways/roads to go from one place to another with help of GPS. We are not going to create a full self driving car overtaking model but a lane follower will be the first step to driving autonomously.
I wanted to create a small scale lane following car using computer vision. So i immediately thought about Raspberry Pi and camera along with a Robot Chassis.
