SparkFun Autonomous Vehicle Competition


Today, Saturday, June 8, 2013, is the SparkFun Autonomous Vehicle Competition (AVC)! Our geeky little hearts are jumping with joy as our favorite day has finally come!

If you’d like to join us, the event is going from 9 a.m. (Mountain) to around 5:30 p.m. today at the Boulder Reservoir. We have entertainment (like a Simon controlled dunk tank), food vendors, and - of course - an awesome robotics competition.

If you can’t make it, we have some options for you! First off:

You can also check us out on Twitter (where we are using the hashtag “#SparkFunAVC”), Facebook, and Instagram. And, of course, we will have plenty of post-event coverage in the coming weeks!

The teams are ready, it’s a beautiful day at the reservoir, and it’s shaping up to be an awesome competition! We hope you can join us (in person or on the web). May the best ‘bot win!

  • Just hope SparkFun will keep the same location and same missions for 2014. So we can compare an apple with an apple :-) Thanks SparkFun Team to organise this! love you!

  • any results posted?

  • I know its early, way early, but please let us know when next year’s event is planned along with any rule changes planned as early as possible.

    I would really like to attend next year’s event with a vehicle to compete!

    Thanks for holding this great event!

  • Noticed there were actual manned cameras with someone switching. When will technology reach the point where we can actually view a recording of a complete vehicle run?

  • Best name on the board: Electric Marmot or Team Dodging Potholes (personally I would’ve done Team Autobot)
