I am looking for some help in setting up a vision based steering system for a fruit picking platform. The machine is already built and the electronics are CAN-BUS. The machine doesn’t travel faster than 2 mph and this steering system only has to keep the machine straight within an orchard row (So you will have a line of trees on your left and right side). The machine operator will turn on auto-steer when he/she drives in an orchard row and will turn it off at the end of the row to make a manual turn. This probably is a trivial task for anyone who knows what they are doing.
So far I have an Intel depth sense D455 camera, a raspberry pi 4 and a PICAN2 (to convert to CAN messaging).
Does anyone have a recommendation if I should reconsider switching the Pi to Jetson ? Can a Jetson communicate with a CAN based controller (I saw this may be possible with 3rd party hardware)? Once my company gets the ball rolling on AI, I think there will be a huge industry demand to do this in Agriculture, coming from an engineer at an industry leading company.
