Death of path following


Took the path following gear off the truck. It was decided that it was too unstable & too fast for the rate of the machine vision algorithm. The hot weather was making daylight drives rare. Getting the test footage that proved the algorithm required lots of manual steering. A slow machine vision autopilot would need to be nearly perfectly on target from the beginning, to have a chance.

The combination of sonar & compass once again emerges as a leading idea. It needs another microcontroller. The initial design keeps a constant heading with the athlete directly behind. The next design keeps a constant heading with the athlete a fixed distance beside.
