What we'll do

Come on down to Make-Create to learn how you can get involved in building your own (model) Self Driving Car. If you're interested in building one for yourself, this is the place to start, and we now have kits available!

Our self driving car, which we've affectionately called the DingoCar, is inspired by the https://diyrobocars.com/ website and the DonkeyCar project https://www.donkeycar.com/

The car has a Raspberry Pi with Camera and a custom HAT that allows us to record data as the car drives around the track. We then use a neural network (Artificial Intelligence) to train a model so we can then let the cars loose to drive themselves!

It's not only great fun, but you'll learn a lot about the technologies we're working with - and you can start out as a total beginner, with no experience required at all. We'll have experienced DingoCar trainers at the session to help you out. All you need is an inquisitive mind.

Our kits have all the required parts, so if you're keen to join in the fun, we can help you get started. We run monthly build workshops too, which we will post on Meetup - this session will be a great chance to get a taste of what it's all about.

We're looking forward to seeing you at Make-Create.
