RTOs-Car Using ARM ProcessorAuthor(s): R. Pathamuthu*, Muhammed Sadath Ali, Rahil and V. Rubin
The paper aims to design a driverless car, which could be started and driven remotely from an android Smartphone. It gives the user an additional retrieving facility. Remote door control is introduced. When the car is parked remote alert is automatically energised. 3-axis motion sensor has been fixed in the car. As soon as the car senses an motion of abnormal, the amount of motion is noted and if it is a gentler one, a simple warning alarm is generated and if the motion is very much abnormal it activates much louder alarm warning and sends an alert SMS to the user mobile. The parking assist is energised by simply pressing a button either on the smart phone or dashboard on the car. A special android APP running on our Android Smartphone makes this possible. One push of the button is all it takes. The car drives it into parking areas. For stopping the maneuver, another push button is used on the Smartphone. A similar interface is available for retrieving modes too. Bluetooth communication is used between android Smartphone and the car. The car unit is joined with the Smartphone via Bluetooth to remove most of the security problems. A open source Real time operating System (RTOS) is selected, to demonstrate on a smaller robotic vehicle. This is multitasking RTOS running on the ARM Processor is used to coordinate each task of the system.
