The speed and direction control of the own designing intelligent car is the core of intelligent car control system. In order to get fast, stable and reliable running on a different track, the system collects the discrete path information by an array of photoelectric sensors, the digital PID algorithm and indirect PID algorithm are utilized on the drive-motor and steering gear. Therefore, the system avoids the step-variation of intelligent car’s direction and speed change, eliminates the over-control and oscillation, and approximately obtains continuous control effect. The study show that the control algorithm has a nice self-tracing effect on the black and white(or large color difference)track.
