Final Selection of Parts for the Computer Vision Collision Prevention Project

After putting a lot of thought into what parts we need for the Crash Prevention Project, we decided on the following parts. Although we could have gotten better parts, we were restricted by budget and time which is the main factor that went into deciding which parts to get.

Deciding Which Parts to Get for the Collision Prevention Project

After deciding to go with the Raspberry Pi route rather than the Mojo FPGA board, I now have decided what peripherals I need in order to make the omputeollision prevention research project a reality. The most important thing was that I now knew I had to work around the Raspberry Pi.

Car Collision Prevention Project – FPGA or Raspberry Pi?

My senior design project as an electrical engineering student is to build a system that prevents car collisions. It started off as a very simple project that alerts drivers if they’re approaching an object quickly but grew into a big project that involves advanced image processing and interviewing to prevent crashes.
