The School of Computer Science invites all members of the Carnegie Mellon community to participate in The 26th Annual Carnegie Mellon Mobot Races. 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 simple, 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 while having a great time.
All potential participants or those just considering entering the races are welcome to try their hand. Individuals and team efforts are particularly encouraged. If you can't build one yourself, lean on a colleague, friend, or associate in another division. There is strength (and sometimes better Mobots!) through collaboration and sharing of skills/knowledge. You know you want to try it, so don't shy away!
And if you don't build one, come cheer on a friend...
And alums - come on, we know you can still build a Mobot, right? We hope to see you at and "in" the races! And we're giving you 2 terms to work on it :)
