"Donkey Car: Scale-model, self-driving cars: Introduction, workshops and track days" by Andy Gelme
From humble beginnings around April 2016 (?) selfracingcars.com spawned diyrobocars.com in November 2016. That monthly meet-up now attracts hundreds of participants and has inspired track days around the world, including Melbourne. These relatively inexpensive vehicles are a fun way to get into Machine Learning and robotics. donkeycar.com is one of the most popular vehicles to build and race. In addition to a technical introduction, this brief presentation will also provide details on upcoming workshops and track days in Melbourne.
