Hack and Race-Prep Autonomous Cars

Mar 12, 2022 · San Diego, United States of America

San Diego Robotics DIYRobocars Race-Prep Day, Hosted by UCSD.

Please keep in mind that at the Saturdays meeting we expect you to have your robocar built and software installed. I hope you will understand that for us time at the track is limited to once a week for 4 hours. We would like to use it for development as much as feasible.

Please complete your robot build before coming to the Saturdays meetup. See the 2nd Wednesday of month Beginner/Builder Meetup and our slack channel. Then bring your bot and computer to the track.

Please sign-up and come for our monthly Beginners and Builders Meetup before coming to the Saturdays Meetup.

10 :00 am - 2:00 pm. Training and racing

We have built a double lane track with a yellow dashed center-line. Expect a track roughly 30x15 feet, with a concrete floor and duct tape lines.

Don't worry if you are still working things out with the software. We will be on hand to help all get going. This is a great chance to gather training data for you robot. Still figuring out hardware and/or configuring the software on the bot and laptop? Go to one of the 2nd Wed of month Beginner/Builder Meetups.

There will be tables, power, and wifi. Please bring your laptops and bot and be ready to hack.

A special thanks to UCSD for hosting us.

Thank you.
SD DIYRobocars.

    If you like to build your own robots, come join us! Any kind of robot. Maybe small table-top autonomous robots made from Lego Mindstorms kits, or with custom Arduino brains. Or larger custom machined bots with Android cell phones as brains. Maybe quad-copter flying bots. How about battle bots. Or sumo bots. Or fire-fighting bots. Or? Let's get together and show off our robots and maybe create a local robotics competition. Or maybe prepare together for national robotic competitions such as at RoboGames. Wha
