Hack and Race-Prep Autonomous Cars at UCSD
San Diego Robotics DIYRobocars Race-Prep Day, Hosted by UCSD Complete your robot build(see 2nd Tue of month Beginner/Builder Meetup) and bring your bots and computers to the track. Advanced users only so please only sign up of you've already attended our monthly Beginners and Builders Meetup and have built your bot and setup all the software on the robot. At the track we'll help you get bots to drive themselves. Agenda: 10 :00 am - 2:00 pm. Training and racing We have built a double lane track with a yellow dashed center-line. Expect a track roughly 30x15 feet, with a concrete floor and duct tape lines. Don't worry if you are still working things out with the software. We will be on hand to help all get going. This is a great chance to gather training data for you robot. Still figuring out hardware and/or configuring the software on the bot and laptop? Go to one of the 2nd Tue of month Beginner/Builder Meetups. There will be tables, power, and wifi. Please bring your laptops and bot and be ready to hack. A special thanks to UCSD for hosting us.

What we're about

If you like to build your own robots, come join us! Any kind of robot. Maybe small table-top autonomous robots made from Lego Mindstorms kits, or with custom Arduino brains. Or larger custom machined bots with Android cell phones as brains. Maybe quad-copter flying bots.

How about battle bots. Or sumo bots. Or fire-fighting bots. Or?

Let's get together and show off our robots and maybe create a local robotics competition. Or maybe prepare together for national robotic competitions such as at RoboGames.

What do you want to build?
