Since the very beginning, Michael and I have been dedicated to contributing to the open source community. This Spring, we open sourced the entire repository for the self-driving golf cart project. In order to better host the code base, as well as to provide us with a platform for future research, we registered a Github organization account, Sigma A.I. The golf cart’s code will be hosted there, as well as several other interesting machine learning projects. I will introduce you to the current repositories.
As described above, you can always find the latest code for the autonomous golf cart project at Sigma A.I.’s Github page. We are actively maintaining the code and looking for contributions.
If you are looking for some code for behavioral cloning, I published some research code on Github. For the past month, I have been experimenting with different models and datasets to improve the golf cart’s steering performance. Want to learn more about this interesting algorithm? check out my previous posts. Please note that the project is still under development. (I will write a post on that soon)
There is a multi-class, real-time semantic segmentation repo on Sigma A.I.’s Github as well! Including the pre-trained weights! Our (crudely) trained results scored 89% on the cityscape dataset. Now, I am working on combining several datasets to boost the training results.
Last but not least, if you are trying to use GPS for some basic localization with ROS, plus visualization with OpenStreetMaps, this repo is perfect for you. This project includes a serial GPS interface with ROS, rviz with OpenStreetMaps datapoints, as well as real-time visualization updates as the object (golf cart) is moving. Overall, this should serve as a great starting point for a simple ROS localization project.
I hope you will find these projects useful. The brevity of my descriptions might not be sufficient to fully explain what each project entails. If you have any questions, comments or concerns, please email me at email@example.com. Do you have cool projects to share? Please leave a comment below.
