A vehicle capable of using sensors to detect and control its driving actions is called an autonomous vehicle. The development of autonomous vehicles caters to many application areas in the technological advancement of society. This research paper shows a demonstration and implementation of an autonomous vehicle based on a convolutional neural network. The vehicle uses a 1/10th scale RC car as its primary base for the system control with the camera as its primary input. For the computing

The unique aspect of this project is the system design, the CAD modeling, and the track built used to train and test the self-driving capability of the car. The CNN model and the software algorithm also are exclusive to this research project. This research has potential in a variety of application areas in education and also for robotics and autonomous car enthusiasts.
