Carolo – German mini car DARPA clone

Sonntag, Februar 1st, 2009

This year’s Carolo challenge will be held at the university of Braunschweig on February 10.

Like in the famous DARPA urban challange the vehicles will have to completely rely on their onboard sensors and processing power, as no external (i.e. human) help is to be provided. Major difference — the cars are in scale 1:10, a fact which also may be influenced by the available budgets. All competitors are teams of students.
