Each vehicle will have to
Navigate to and pick up a randomly placed payload from a general designated area
Then race around a previously unknown obstacle course
While navigating turns and avoiding "pedestrians"
Then deliver the payload to an unloading area
The vehicles which complete the set of challenges in the fastest time will be declared winners with trophies, certificates and cash prizes. More details will follow as we get closer. The more the number of competitors, the bigger the prizes will be.
Everything will culminate during the last week of summer break with an amazing competition, the Evodyne Autonomous Racing Tournament 2023.
This competition is open to our students who will have all built their own AI enabled smart mobile robots by that time. There will be certificates, trophies, and prizes.
Summer Robotics Program 2023
Build AI Enabled Robots while Learning Modern Robotics Concepts
Last year we gave each student a fantastic, yet safe in-person experience. This year, our goal is to provide an unforgettable summer filled with excitement and improvement. We design and manufacture all our robots right here in Mountain View. Some of the nation's highest ranked schools including Palo Alto High School and Monta Vista High School in Cupertino, along with schools in Sacramento County and North Carolina are using our robots and curriculum.
The rules will be designed to ensure a great contest in all situations:
Even with a worst case COVID-19 scenario with absolutely no student interaction allowed
If the situation eases up we will allow teams of students to co-operate to complement their skills and increase odds of winning, but only and with parent permission
