Event Details

For people who want to make and race DIY autonomous cars of any size, from tiny 16th scale to full-size, including go-karts.

The overall aim of this group is to make and race pro-level autonomous cars on a budget. That means that they’re smaller than regular cars (from go-kart size, down to 1/16th scale) and can be used indoors.

But just because they’re small and cheap doesn’t mean that you can’t run real autonomous car software on them. Rather than doing all processing on-board, these DIY robocars tend to transmit the data from their on-board sensors (cameras, sonar, lidar, radar, GPS or whatever else you have) via Wifi to a laptop that runs pro-grade AI and robotics software, including TensorFlow, ROS and the rest of the Udacity toolchain.
