steering through text file

steering through text file

I am working on a project in which I am getting directional coordinates in a text file. The coordinates are of my head movement. Now I want to steer a vehicle through my head movement. Means if I bent my head left/right then the car moves left/right.

How could I do that with vdrift.

Please tell me where I have to make changes in the source code, so that the car gets its direction from the text file??

I am using opencv to track head center coordinates in visual studio 2010. My project is working in windows only (some problem with camera capture in ubuntu). Can I edit the source code of vdrift in ubuntu and after building with that source code can I use it in windows with my project??

Please tell me asap.......

Hi sisso.

I think the most simple way would be to modify CARCONTROLMAP_LOCAL:TonguerocessInput to use your file input.

Or just CARCONTROLMAP_LOCAL:TonguerocessSteering if you are interested in steering only.

Btw you can build vdrift with vs2010. Checkout vdrift-win into vdrift/vdrift-win and run "vdrift-win\premake4 vs2010" to generate the solution.

Hi NaN,

thanks for replying, I have downloaded project source from but there is no project in it that could run and built in vs2010. There is a file named premake4.lua file in the main folder, is it the right file ? how could i make it built in vs2010 as a project(.lua is not supported format for vs2010 project). Also the folder vdrift contains only a subfolder named raw.

premake4.lua is a script to create project files.

You need to download vdrift-win(windows dependencies) and place/extract it in the vdrift directory. Then from vdrift directory run the command vdrift-win\premake4 vs2010 to create the project files for vs2010.
