Natcar is an undergraduate design competition where autonomous RC cars must follow a track marked by a wire carrying a sinusoidal current at 75khz with amplitude 100mA.
This project is an attempt to model and simulate the Natcar environment as close as possible so that the car's control algorithm can be implemented, tested, and quantified in a virtual environment. This has the potential to speed development time, lower costs, and offer quantitative insights into different approaches. Furthermore, since the environment is completely virtual, one can explore the effects of various non-idealities including noise, finite sampling frequency, finite sampling resolution, time delays, friction, and mass.
