[Discourse.ros.org] [ROS Projects] ROS libraries for the Donkey RC car platform
Hi all, Donkey Car -- http://www.donkeycar.com -- is a DIY 1/16th scale RC robot car platform equipped with a Raspberry Pi 3 and a monocular camera. It's easy and inexpensive to put together, and the project is actively maintained by a relatively large community.
The platform is designed to be a single purpose autonomous racer, but I have found it useful for more general experimentation. For this reason I've ported the custom python controller scripts to ROS and created a ready-to-run Ubuntu MATE disk image. The image includes all ROS packages necessary to access the camera and send commands to the vehicle.
