As AMZ Racing Driverless, we’re competing in the first Formula Student Driverless competition with «flüela», an electric 4WD car with high wheel torque and a lightweight design (0-100km/h in 1.9s), developed by our team in 2015. To race autonomously, the car has been extended with a LiDAR, a self-developed stereo visual-inertial system, an IMU, a GPS and a velocity sensor. We chose to use ROS Indigo on our Master Slave computing system, as it provided a robust, flexible framework to interface the different components of our Autonomous System. Furthermore we made extensive use of its logging capabilities and powerful visualization and simulation tools.
