This study presents a smart go-kart capable of moving automatically from one place to another. The system is composed of hover boards used as front wheels and main engine, which is installed at the back. GPS is used for setting the beginning and destination with the help of an android application's graphical user interface. The start and destination along with the option of manual and automatic drive, will be set using the android application and will be sent to Arduino microcontroller through Bluetooth module. The kart will start moving after all the inputs are set. The kart will navigate automatically by the help of the algorithm created by the researchers integrating the compass sensor from the android application and the wiper motor, there will be a circle placed on the google maps that will actively check if the kart is inside that radius, if the kart is detected in that circle, the android application will send a command to the Arduino to stop the process which will mean destination reached.
