Traffic is a huge concern for anyone who uses a car in a city. Every year in the US, traffic congestion makes Americans lose around 124 billion dollars. It causes stress to drivers, wastes time, and makes cars more prone to accidents.
Our project is to address this problem with self driving cars that communicate with vehicles and stations around it, and a model infrastructure to support them. Our goal is to:
- Have the whole sensor and communications hardware to cost under 500 USD
- Develop a car that can successfully navigate through a test track
- Develop an efficient communication protocol for the network
