An annual autonomous vehicle competition is now open for high schools to compete in and spectate.
The Droid Racing Challenge (DRC) is a student robotics challenge focusing on the development of ground-based autonomous robotic racing platforms. The “droids” that take part in this competition will feature autonomous operation, robotic vision, navigation and obstacle avoidance, and mechanical design optimised for speed. The Challenge has been set so that a small team of undergraduate students should be able to complete a capable robot in one semester. However, this year, the challenge will be open to high school students to compete and or spectate.

* The competition is open to high school students, however, space is limited. High school teams will need the support of a teacher they would like to compete with. If your high school would like to attend as a spectator, please email the Engineering Engagement team at firstname.lastname@example.org
