Team Vision for Problem Definition Phase

Project Summary

The Autonomous People Mover (APM) is an electric, self-driving golf cart that can transport people from one location to another while avoiding obstacles in its way. Using a variety of different cameras and sensors, the APM can detect objects and terrain, and safely transport passengers around campus.

Once complete, the APM will be summoned via a text message, after which it would drive itself to the customer’s location, pick them up, and determine a destination using voice recognition. Ultimately, the purpose of the APM is twofold: to provide accessibility to campus goers, and to act as a platform for research and refinement of autonomous vehicle technologies.

Design Review Materials

Include links to:

It is appropriate for you to send your customer and guide a link to this page in preparation for the review. This will ensure that they know what you will be presenting and how to view all of your work. Any EDGE link should start with http://edge.rit.edu/edge/P1xxxx..... Using "http" instead of "https" will ensure that non-RIT stakeholders can view the content without being prompted for a DCE login and password.

Plans for next phase

As a team, in order to prepare for the next review, we want to:
