The School of Computer Science invites all members of the Carnegie Mellon community to participate in The 23rd Annual Carnegie Mellon Mobot Races, in spring 2016 (April 15!). Participants will race autonomous vehicles ("MObile roBOTs") they have built along a slalom-type course on the paved walk in front of Wean Hall.

The purpose of the competition is to generate technological excitement, provide hands-on experience for our undergraduates, and showcase the cleverness and technical competence of Carnegie Mellon undergraduates and other community members (including alumni). We hope to stimulate inter-disciplinary activity toward producing something that is technically noteworthy.

The Mobot Slalom Race

Race of autonomous vehicles (MObile roBOTs) along a slalom course on the paved walk in front of Wean Hall.

The MoboJoust Competition
