First DIY Robocar Race in Hong Kong
Thanks to William, we are able to host our first DIY Robocar HK race in PolyU on Apr 7. The venue is a very nice indoor area with power outlets! Since it is our first race event, I would like to invite everyone to design the track together. Tentative schedule for race day: 10:00am - 11:00am: Design and setup track 11:00am - 12:30pm: Training 12:30pm - 1:30pm: Lunch 1:30pm - 2:30pm: Race 2:30pm - 3:00pm: Cleanup • What to bring An autonomous race car, any 1:10 or smaller RC car, that could complete the course without any human intervention. You may build a Donkey Car ( if you don't have any. Any electronic devices you need, e.g. Laptop computer, smartphone. • Important to know Rules will be based on, but could be changed to fit our needs. This is just a meetup to have some fun. Not a real race and there's no prizes for winners. :) If you want to build the Donkey Car, you may take a look at it's official documentation at For buying parts in Hong Kong, please refer to Don't worry if you don't have anything to bring/hack on. You're welcome to just hang out and do the meetup thing. Or help others hack their things. This is that brief moment where we can all be n00bs. Someday our cars are supposed to be perfectly safe and autonomous. But for now, let's hack and crash while we still can. You may also join our Facebook Group for latest information:

    What we're about

    Public Group

    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 ( ) was started by Chris Anderson ( ) (CEO of 3D Robotics, 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 HK was created to extend the reach of his initiative so that people in Hong Kong and the surrounding region can participate in the magic!
