Electric Autonomous Vehicle

Use the EVs Sonar Sensor to avoid obstacles in its path by following a preset collision avoidance mechanism.

The Big Idea

In this lesson, we’ll discover the exciting world of Autonomous Electric Vehicles! First, we’ll gain a deeper understanding of the impacts of traditional combustion engines and how they contribute to greenhouse gases. Then we’ll learn how Electric Vehicles can offer a more sustainable transportation method with zero emissions.

Take Action!

In the ‘Take Action’ portion of this lesson, you will build a simulated electric vehicle capable of avoiding obstacles. The goal of this lesson is to understand how we can leverage technology to create more sustainable transportation methods that are not only better for the environment but also contribute to safe roads!
