Open to all members of the Carnegie Mellon Community

The School of Computer Science invites all members of the CMU community to participate in the 28th Annual CMU Mobot Slalom Race in the spring of 2022. MOBOT (MObile roBOTs) entrants race autonomous vehicles along a slalom course on the paved walk in front of Wean Hall. The course consists of a series of gates connected by a wavy, painted stripe. Vehicles will be judged on their ability to navigate sequentially through the gates.

The Very Late Fall Open House will be held in November 2021 and the Spring Information Session in February 2022 (if permitted). Two official competitions are typicallye held during the Spring Semester: the $99 Mini Challenge and Clinic on Wednesday, April 6; and the final competition during Spring Carnival, on Friday, April 8. The preliminary competition provides an opportunity for contestants to run the course under race conditions, and will encourage early development of vehicles.

NOTE: The $99 Challenge will not be held in 2022.
