Welcome to the Elcano Project Wiki

As the title says, WELCOME TO THE ELCANO PROJECT! Over the past few years many different teams have been working hard to create Cheap and Modular autonomy at the University of Washington Bothell. We are currently working on our first two prototypes which are now in the form of tricycles. With the use of affordable microcontrollers, such as the Arduino Mega 2560 and Raspberry PI, we are working towards creating Autonomy for anyone to rebuild anywhere, and that under $2000 and fully open-source. But we don't plan to stop there, no. That is just the first step in reaching our ultimate goal, which is making our systems applicable to any desired ground vehicles, such as cars and other vehicles. Autonomy is nothing new, in fact it has been around for over 40 years, the difference is that now we have the ability to make it available for anyone who desires furthering their knowledge or simply finding a safer way to work.
