English title
System for Autonomous Navigation of Toy Car on a Race Track

The goal of this project is the implementation of a system for autonomous control of a toy car model on a racetrack. First part of this project is a study of typical ways of laying out a racetrack for the movement of a model car and a follow-up study of possible ways of implementing the autonomous movement of the model on the racetrack. The next part is devoted to the hardware and software side of the implementation of the proposed system. The penultimate part presents the proposed system for obstacle detection, it's implementation and resulting properties. The last part of the project presents the final implementation of an autonomous model capable of independent driving on a set racetrack, reading signs and reaction to obstacle located on the track.
