Abstract

Autonomous vehicles have been rapidly advancing and developing in the technology world today and have paved new avenues for different and new innovative ideas. There are several benefits to incorporating autonomous vehicles into the roads alongside with human-driving vehicles presently and for the future. With time and research, there are high hopes technology regarding self-driving vehicles may advance and decrease human-driving accidents. The project demonstrates the concept of autonomous vehicle to vehicle communication through a mutual cloud and its effect on determining alternative trajectories. The objective is met by manipulating two remote controlled cars to send data to each other using a cloud. Reading and writing was established between the two cars to ensure effective and efficient communication on a real time basis. One raspberry pi was mounted on the first car and a camera and lidar was implemented to send data to the cloud. Another raspberry pi was mount to the second car and a servo-hat was used to control the car and test the trajectory determined from the data received. Originally both vehicles were expected to have the same setup and the cloud was intended as a two-way connection between the two cars. However, the first car eventually stopped all movement and became unable to prove it was receiving data from the second car. As a result, the first car acted as a cause by collecting and sending data and the second car acted as the effect by executing the trajectory. Both cars managed to cooperate in an autonomous fashion with one car supplying real-time data over the cloud and the other car reading this data off the same cloud while also interpreting it and acting accordingly. Autonomy, teamwork between the two cars and the cloud communication was achieved and implemented successfully.
