What we're about

We are a group of people from around Melbourne who are interested in building autonomous vehicles. Specifically our initial goal is to build 1/16 scale self-driving cars (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3UXoIuhk2cU) that are capable of racing autonomously around a track. Although all types of autonomous vehicle builders are welcome to join in.

This group comes from a diverse background representing interests in engineering, programming, computer vision, AI, machine learning and robotics. However, a key aim is to help newcomers of all ages get into these emerging technologies and just have some fun.

If you're interested in building a self driving vehicle and taking it to a track to test it out, then this is where you want to be. We'll conduct build workshops at HackerSpaces / MakerSpaces around Melbourne and regional Victoria ... and then hold regular track days as we get underway.

Inspired by DIYRoboCars (https://diyrobocars.com) and aiming for competitive track days (https://diyrobocars.com/2017/07/19/roll-your-own-local-diy-robocars-group), like this (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lfwq73D7oHg) !

Build workshop(s): Details to be determined

Subsequent workshop details ... to be determined. There is a stock car Bill of Materials (https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/e/2PACX-1vS4dDVcc-XSizIfDcnYqrwnpr3s2C9YOatZ-NBpMu1980PFuvVG0G8UBcrAg2bCNygeN5uCzEMGMFT9/pubhtml) (thanks Mark Wolfe) ... and you end up with something like these (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3UXoIuhk2cU). This meeting is intended for people who are keen to build ... this ain't no spectator sport ! Whilst there is no charge for this second meeting ... if you aren't a CCHS member, then a modest donation on the night would be greatly appreciated ... to help support the HackerSpace.
