If you’d like to build a miniature self-driving car, perhaps you would first turn to an Arduino for control or even a Raspberry Pi for more advanced processing. Otavio Good is no exception, but after attaching a few Arduinos to an RC car, he moved on to driving it with a speedometer and camera via a TensorFlow neural network running on a Macbook Pro — yes, it has an actual notebook computer embedded in the 1/10th-scale model car.
If giving your expensive notebook computer the power to sip across a racetrack autonomously represents too much of an equipment hazard for your budget, he proposes you start out with a Raspberry Pi-based solution called the Donkey Car. You can see both on display in the video seen here.[h/t Hackaday]
