I have an RC car with a camera, I have implemented so that i can detect lanes on my track (think like a nascar track). I want to get this car to be able to go around the track autonomous. But I am quite unsure what my next step should be.
Either I can do an algorithm that detects so that I stay in the middle of the lane (if i get to close to either of the lines I steer towards the center).
Or perhaps go around the track manually and save the coordinates of the detected lines as well as the actions I take (steering) and try a DQN approach.
I'm trying to minimize my 'trial and error' time a little here. Perhaps there are some important steps in between here, or a solution that I have not thought of (i.e. am I missing something)?
I'm doing this as a proof of concept therefore I can only spend maximum of a month on this, so what would you do here?
