Pure Pursuit Algorithm and Autonomous Driving

Pure Pursuit Algorithm is a commonly used path-tracking algorithm that in autonomous driving applications determines the steering rate necessary for the vehicle to stay on track. The aim of the project is to set up a simulation of a moving UGV and experiment with different mathematical solutions to improve the existing technology, making it suitable for a wider spectrum of applications. The main result produced by this research is a Modified Follow the Carrot Algorithm capable of high accurac...

IMPROVEMENT AND CONSTRUCTION OF A PROTOTYPE OF AN INDUSTRIAL (S1 MODEL) POULTRY FEED MIXING MACHINE

This is a thesis on the improvement of an S1 grinding machine. It has an overview from description of machine, material selection, design and a developed summary to help understand how improvement can be made.ABSTRACT The  need  for  improved  productivity  in  the  agricultural  industry  cannot  be  over-emphasised. One of the key factors that influence this is increased availability of feed for animals. The use of mixing machines ...

DESIGN & CONSTRUCTION OF HAMMER MILL MACHINE

Processing involves conversion of raw materials into varied forms of finished products. It is carried out in different fields of science and engineering. Agro and Agro allied industry, food manufacturing, pharmaceutical, ceramic, civil engineering industries etc are involved in processing. The breakdown of large stones to an acceptable size for road construction is the business of the quarry industry (civil engineering). The grinding (milling) of clay materials for the purpose of production o...

A Model for Economic Production in Manufacturing Industries Under Unstable Power Supply.

The research study presents the development of a model for Energy cost in manufacturingindustries under irregular power supply. The work considers power consumption in the operationof production machines, hence cost incurred in running of these machinesParameters such as machine types for production, numbers of machine types for production andpower ratings of machines for production were also considered in the development of the modelThe study employs linear programming approach in formulatin...

THE FABRICATION FOR A SET OF SIEVES AND SAKER

ABSTRACTThe fabrication of a set of sieves and shaker was carried out in paliton workshop, Enugu. After a thorough analysis on the suitable materials to be used in fabrication, galvanized steel was chosen due to its advantages over materials of fabrication. The fabrication was carried out in order to analyze the sizes of particles. The component parts of the sets of sieve and their dimensions are as follows:Height of sieve 5.5cmNumber of sieves 7Diameter of sieve 13.5cmShape of sieve circular...

FABRICATION OF THE A METALLIC BOOKSHELF

ABSTRACT Knowledge could only be obtained successively by the use of books for research. This can be achieved only by preserving books already purchased. As a result we fabricate a metallic shelf made up of metallic sheet. Precisely mild steel sheets. The mild steel used for the fabrication of the shelf is 1.5mm (16gauge) mild steel. The shelf is made up of 3 partition. In fabricating the metallic shelf several process where involved. We plundered on the material to be used that can...
