dc.description.abstractThis paper describes a MEng thesis project conducted with the Duckietown group at MIT's CSAIL. During the duration of the project, the Duckietown software suite and ROS was made to run on the Raspberry Pi Zero (Or Raspberry Pi Zero W) hardware. The chassis and size of the bot is scaled down from the original Duckiebot design. This reduced the cost for the robot. The smaller Duckiebot, called the Ducklingbot, provides insight as to how well the Duckietown software suite can scale downwards to a less-powerful system, as well as give those interested in working with Duckietown a cheaper entry point from the smaller hardware.en_US
