I’m thinking about an autonomous driving project for outdoor surveillance, I think Leo Rover could be useful for the development but due to lack of experience I’m not sure about it. I also don’t know what additional components I might need.
The idea is to walk the fence of an enclosure and see the state of it with deep learning (this part I have it solved).
I have seen that there is a tutorial for autonomous indoor navigation where components and steps to follow are specified. My doubts are:
- Is this tutorial valid for outdoor navigation?
- What additional hardware or software development would I need?
- Would the development be very expensive to have a system that follows a GPS route avoiding obstacles or is it as simple as configuring correctly certain ROS modules?
- Apart from the LIDAR sensor and the GPS sensor, would I need any other component, for example to power the sensors? would these sensors affect the autonomy of the vehicle?
Thank you very much!!!
