Hello there friend! SparkFun will be closed on 8/17/2018 @2pm for a company event. We will not be offering our normal Friday tour or Local Pickups during this time. We will resume normal operations on Monday 8/20/2018. Any orders placed after 2pm MT on 8/17/2018 will be processed when we resume normal operations. Have a great day!
The AVC is this Saturday, April 23rd.
Outlined against a blue-gray April sky, the AVC vehicles will ride again. In dramatic lore they are known by names like Maverick, Grover, and Flaming Death. These are only aliases. They form the crest of the Autonomous Vehicle Cyclone before which acres of pavement will be destroyed at SparkFun headquarters as hundreds of spectators peer down upon the bewildering panorama spread out upon the asphalt below.
Dramatic? Yes. Too much? Probably. But this weekend's autonomous vehicle competition is shaping up to be a dandy and we are pretty dang excited. This post is serving as your final reminder for the event this weekend. If you are planning on attending as a spectator, please register at our EventBrite page.
We will be streaming live video of the event and we will post links for that on the day of the race (again, Saturday, April 23rd). Yours truly (EmceeGrady) will also be "live-blogging" the event via the SparkFun Twitter page, so you can follow that way as well. Hope to see you out there!
