Finally submitted my shopping list with a better motor and the electronics I'll need to build my self-driving car. Now I'm going to get the car chassis ready and start programming the software while I wait for my parts to arrive!!!

Got some old broken RC equipment from a friend for cheap. Hopefully I’ll be able to scavenge some parts from it for my project, allowing me to save money on some parts and do less 3D printing!

Finally submitted my SOM application (it's probably too late, but we'll see) and started writing a blog post about my Summer of Making project! benjaminashbaugh.me/projects/self-driving-car-process
