Hands-On Learning: EEC 195 A/B

EEC 195 A/B: Autonomous Vehicle Project

The students will be provided with a radio-controlled car chassis and the rules for the contest. The objective of the project is to design and construct an autonomous race car that can negotiate a preset course in the shortest time possible. The course is marked by 1-inch-wide white tape on a dark-colored background (carpet). In the spring, the students may compete against students from other universities in the NATCAR competition sponsored by National Semiconductor. The contest is intended for undergraduate students, but teams with graduate students, high-school students or students who have competed in a previous Natcar may attend the competition, although they will compete in a separate division.
