Robot Racing: International Autonomous Robot Racing Competition 2011
|When: Saturday, July 23rd|
|Where: University of British Columbia – Vancouver|
Robot Racing is an effort to promote research in autonomous mobile robotics technology in a structure that is challenging and exciting, for both the competitors and spectators. The competition provides students with real-world hands-on engineering design challenges, including components of mechanical, computer, control software, and system integration. Students work together to design and build robotic vehicles that can navigate obstacle-filled courses without any human guidance or control. Participants work together to design and build a robot that integrates advanced control theory, machine vision, and electronics into a vehicle designed to handle rough terrain. There are prizes to be one, but the real objective is to strengthen your team-building and leadership skills with your creative robot tech savvy!
