The Kart module is a Summer School module for students at the end of the first year.

System Architecture

The kart is controlled by a smartPhone via BlueTooth.

A BlueTooth receiver on the kart control board communicates via an RS232 serial link with the control board FPGA.

BlueTooth communication

The FPGA receives following controls:

  • the propulsion DC motor
  • the steering stepper motor
  • two LEDs

The FPGA sends following information back:
