Distinguishing a Foreground From Background of Same Color

For my 7th Grade Science Fair, I developed a science fair project that could help improve current car autopilot systems. I came up with this project after a Tesla car crashed due to the inability to distinguish the white sky from a white truck. For more information about the crash itself, visit the following link: https://www.nytimes.com/2017/01/19/business/tesla-model-s-autopilot-fatal-crash.html So I wanted to create a car that could successfully distinguish between a foreground and background of same color. I created the car using Python coding and the car would drive along a path. When the car saw an obstacle (that was the same color as the background), it stopped. With this science fair project, I won 1st place at the Alameda County Science and Engineering Fair, and an opportunity to compete at the State Science Fair and the Broadcom Masters program. To learn more about my project, I created this youtube video which you can visit at the following link (which is the video above): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RK_lHzUCOQM Please share this link with your friends and family to publicize my project. Thanks for all your support!
