Sparkfun AVC 2014

If you've been before, get excited because the AVC will be a bit different this year. If you've never been, you're in for a treat! This year the AVC will be held at the Boulder Reservoir on June 21st, 2014 from 8:30am until 4pm.

For 2014 we’re allowing all manner of autonomous vehicle, if you can build it you can bring it. Anything goes, from multirotor aircraft to any size rover you can imagine. In another departure from years past, we’re not going to limit the number of entries, so sign up!

This year we've added a new feature to the ground course, a line! Now you can enter your line follower and not rely solely on GPS. The aerial competition gets a new set of obstacles, the dreaded balloons of death! Three balloons will be randomly placed in the flight path and can be avoided or intercepted for extra points!

Student teams are also encouraged to enter. You can enter any competition (Aerial or Ground) and in any class. Your entry just needs to be 80% completed by students. When registering, let us know what school your team is affiliated with.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
