The goal of this group is to build a community of autonomous vehicle hackers who make and race autonomous RC cars on a budget. Small-scale remote control cars fill a critical need for applying Autonomous Vehicle technology to real world conditions while still being approachable for individual enthusiasts. We think this is the ideal platform for really getting your hands dirty with the array of skills needed to put an autonomous vehicle on the road. We also think it's just really cool! Join us and let's start hacking!
DIY Robocars (https://diyrobocars.com/) was started by Chris Andersen (https://twitter.com/chr1sa) (CEO of 3DR, founder of DIY Drones and winner of Sparkfun Autonomous Vehicle Competition, former editor of Wired Magazine and author of The Long Tail, Free, and Makers) and currently covering San Fransisco and the Bay Area. DIY Robocars NYC was created to extend the reach of his initiative so that people in New York City and the surrounding region can participate in the magic!
