SPECIAL NOTICE: COVID-19

**Please go to http://circuitlaunch.com/blog/announcements/covid-19-preventative-measures-at-circuit-launch/ for the current levels of public health emergency in Alameda County and the actions Circuit Launch will take at each level.**

Join us for our quarterly hack/race day our cool Oakland South location at Circuit Launch. Special final race: Human vs AI!

Events include:

*Experimental Outdoors Track*. Inspired by the Sparkfun Autonomous Vehicle Competition (RIP), this will be in the parking lot outside Circuit Launch. This first one will just be a track for you to use but no official judging; once we have some feedback on the track we'll make it official for future events. What's different about outdoors: 1) you can use GPS, 2) bigger track, for faster and bigger cars, 3) real-world lighting conditions to stress your computer vision more! Guidelines for that are here:

*Proper Lidar maze*: If you've got a smaller car with Lidar and want to try it on a twisty turny track that has walls for your Lidar to see, we've now got one. We had some demo mazes in the past, but the walls were too low and 2D Lidar tended to miss it. Now we've doubled the height to 1 foot, which should be high enough for all cars.
