Autonomous vehicle idea

Postby fran6t » Sun Aug 13, 2017 4:23 pm

Small modeling to test FreeCAD 0.17 Autonomous vehicle idea
Sources on github:
https://github.com/fran6t/Vehicule-Autonome-Urbain
A little macro video made without programming using raw manual placements and " Copy paste "into the macro.
The idea is to show the displacement on an avenue and how load passengers by front side.

The only 0.17 function that I have experienced is to "generate a thickness" share design to make the rear translucent hood and side windows
also without this function I couldn't realize these two pieces.

Hi Francis,
welcome to the freecad-forum.
Is that an "official" research-project or your private interest?

Your design reminds me of the "BMW-Isetta",
called "The rolling Egg". Good design, high performance,
even the german police used it.... :)
