I was a member of the Telemetric Robotics Group at Carnegie Mellon University for a semester. During this time, I revived a past project to work on a proof-of-concept.
I wrote some scripts to control the kayak’s movement in a local network. While one kayak was operated using an RF remote, the other kayak reads the GPS coordinates of the RF controlled kayak and follows it. We took the kayaks to the local pond to prove the concept.
