Intelligent Ground Vehicle Competition

Ages:Undergraduate, Graduate

Types:Tournament, Performance

Categories:Coding & Computer Science, Robotics, STEM

Scope:International

This competition has not yet posted any deadlines.

Design and construction of an Intelligent Vehicle fits well in a two semester senior year design capstone course, or an extracurricular activity earning design credit. The deadline of an end-of-term competition is a real-world constraint that includes the excitement of potential winning recognition and financial gain. Students at all levels of undergraduate and graduate education can contribute to the team effort, and those at the lower levels benefit greatly from the experience and mentoring of those at higher levels. Team organization and leadership are practiced, and there are even roles for team members from business and engineering management, language and graphic arts, and public relations. Students solicit and interact with industrial sponsors who provide component hardware and advice, and in that way get an inside view of industrial design and opportunities for employment. The technologies involved in the IGVC come from a wide range of disciplines and are those of great current interest in both industry and engineering education. Engineering students in all disciplines today would do well to have a familiarity with each of these technologies.

Undergrad and graduate students compete to design, power and construct an intelligent ground vehicle that can follow lanes, detect obstacles, and follow waypoint navigation. The team competition teaches electrical, mechanical and computer science engineering, and awards monetary prizes.
