I’ve recently started an internship where I have to convert an RC vehicle into an autonomous vehicle, we have started phase 1 where the vehicle must be fit with a camera and be controlled remotely with a Logitech G920 steering set, for this, I have been granted a Jetson TX2i and other hardware, I’m very new with the computing and electric part of this so I wondered if you guys could help me.
From what I understand, to be able to control the car I will need a PWM, connected to the Jetson, I was thinking of powering the PWM with the Jetson itself as it contains 5V power outlets which theoretically should be enough, however I’m unsure how I must power the Jetson itself, I’ve been suggested using a LiPo battery for this task and I see the Jetson is rated for 19V max, do I need a power supply unit? Or would connecting a battery straight away work just fine? I’ve also been suggested a power bank connected by USB. In the case of LiPo batteries, what is the current rating I have to look for?
Thanks in advance guys!!
