After several years of saying I'm going to try but then chickening out, I finally signed up for the 2012 AVC and plan to build a ground vehicle. So, now that I've probably bitten off more than I can chew, I'm looking for advice and wondering if anyone has, or is willing to share some with a new guy like me. I'm particularly interested to know if anyone has taken the bold step of sharing their past designs because I'm hoping I can learn a lot by studying what has worked and what has not worked so well. I'm fairly well versed with electronics and have worked with GPS modules, accelerometers, etc., but I only have moderate experience with servos and DC motor control. And, even less experience putting all these pieces together in a way that will get a vehicle to drive from one waypoint to the next. So, is anyone up for sharing, or passing along any advice?
