Project Description

This project is the first stage of vehicle automation for furthering research in the field of dynamic wireless power transfer. Our project focused on the low-level control that interfaces with the vehicle. We reverse engineered the sensor network of a 2013 Ford Focus Electric and found ways to take control of the vehicle using a Tiva C microcontroller. We used a RC transmitter to control the vehicle remotely.
