Software Section at MCAV

Our Software Section is currently focusing on how the vehicle perceives the environment around it. This team is our largest section, consisting of 26 students, studying either mechanical, electrical and computer systems engineering or IT. They are working on localisation, object detection, path planning, tracking control and connectivity.

Object Detection

Object Detection has been working on neural network development and camera calibration, and their focus going forward will be on algorithm optimisation and object tracking and prediction.

Path Planning

Path Planning has developed a module that can save and load a set of pre-generated waypoints for the vehicle to follow from a map, and this module can also generate waypoints in real time.

Tracking Control

Tracking Control has developed an algorithm for adjusting the desired wheel angle of the car based on the car's current position and the upcoming waypoints.
