MIR-Vehicle: Cost-Effective Research Platform for Autonomous Vehicle Applications

  title={MIR-Vehicle: Cost-Effective Research Platform for Autonomous Vehicle Applications},
  author={Ahmed Sharaf Abdelhamed and Balakrishna Yadav Peddagolla and Girma S. Tewolde and Jaerock Kwon},
This paper illustrates the MIR (Mobile Intelligent Robotics) Vehicle: a feasible option of transforming an electric ride-on-car into a modular Graphics Processing Unit (GPU) powered autonomous platform equipped with the capability that supports test and deployment of various intelligent autonomous vehicles algorithms. To use a platform for research, two components must be provided: perception and control. The sensors such as incremental encoders, an Inertial Measurement Unit (IMU), a camera…

A Sensor Fusion Method for Pose Estimation of C-Legged Robots
A novel algorithm using the encoders of the legs to improve the estimation of the robot localization together with other sensors and together with the algorithm and fusion sensor can be used to endow the robots with autonomous navigation.


Designing a cost-effective Autonomous Vehicle Control System Kit (AVCS Kit)
The main focus of the project was to determine how much capability could be achieved on designing the AVCS Kit to transform a normal kids'-ride-on electric car to an autonomous vehicle research platform, and with the use of commercially available components the authors were able to achieve a good performance system at a minimal cost.
AirSim: High-Fidelity Visual and Physical Simulation for Autonomous Vehicles
A new simulator built on Unreal Engine that offers physically and visually realistic simulations for autonomous vehicles in real world and that is designed from the ground up to be extensible to accommodate new types of vehicles, hardware platforms and software protocols.
This research paper investigates what it takes to design an affordable autonomous ground vehicle platform from the ground up. Using a handful amount of readily available parts, a go-kart sized
