Additional Parts for Mechanical Part of the Crash Prevention Project

The final set of parts for the crash prevention project have arrived. These parts deal more with the mechanical side of things and we’ll use them near the last phase of our project where we have to trigger a brake leaver to stop the car.

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.
