As part of the Engineering Leadership Programme at National Instruments (industrial placement) I have worked on a personal project for one week using NI’s hardware and software. Using the NI myRIO embedded hardware device I have developed a 4-wheeled autonomous rover robot that used image recognition and colour detection. Based on the video-feed observed through a connected USB camera, the stand-alone rover was made to follow and/or flee objects of certain distinct colours.
The fully completed project including full project documentation, circuit schematics and a Youtube video was delivered on-time within one working week.
This little rover also got to travel abroad and got presented during the keynote of NIDays Rome conference on March 5, 2014. As a result thousands of industry experts worldwide were shown this project to showcase how NI tools can be used in students' projects.
