Autonomous Hovercraft Capstone Project Block Diagram Programming Assembly C Schematic Diagram PCB Layout Work Log All Eight Directions Avoid a Wall Flee an Object Process Removed remote control board.
Cut wires.
Drilled holes. Extended wires.
Threaded through. Labeled wires.
Tested the hovercraft. Hug a Wall on the Right Shadow an Object Stay Between Two Walls NDCR Time: 193.2 hours Capstone Time: 341.4 hours Total Time: 534.6 hours and counting
(hopefully not much longer). Special Thanks References Data Sheets and Pictures GP2D12 LCD Screen SRF05 PIC16F887 LN293DNE Things I Have Learned and Gained: Start thinking of your capstone
no later that halfway through your degree. If you can afford it,
buy some toys to play with. Give yourself enough time to
jump forward and/or back. Physics of a Hovercraft Challenges Inherent to the Project Parts List PIC 16F887

Patience My wife...for not divorcing me
after five years of marriage--
four of them with me being a senior. The PIC. What to Do it On? Something that involved: Automation Questions? Don Blanchard Dave Ward Richard, James, Trent, & Jake Greater appreciation for programming. Sensory Input A microcontroller Fascination A challenge Attached the sensors.
Breadboarded motor circuitry.

The region of trapped air underneath the hovercraft is called a plenum chamber. Hovercrafts can go just about everywhere.
Hug a Wall on the Left Wall Switching Avoid a Collision and Return "Braking" mechanism. Coping with an analog environment. Fabrication. Comprehension. Keep reading and staring. Sketch of hovercraft: Google images Menu Selection Fabricated the board.
Soldered the board. "Final" board. My Family: My parents: Steve & Julia Miner
