Getting started with Duckietown

The Duckietown foundation aims to make self-driving technology more accessible by providing an open-source platform and teaching materials.

I backed the Kickstarter campaign and got the material to assemble two duckiebots and some road segments.

I’ve currently followed the steps in the duckiebot manual to assemble my duckiebots and have completed camera and wheel calibration.

Here’s a fairly unimpressive video of me testing the motor trim by seeing how closely the robot would follow the centre line when driven forward. It’s not great but probably good enough when combined with feedback from the camera.
