What we're about
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!
This group started as DIY Robocars HK and renamed to Hong Kong Society of Autonomous Model Vehicles (SAMV) 香港自動駕駛模型協會 because we want to expand into other types of vehicles, e.g. drones, boats.
DIY Robocars ( https://diyrobocars.com/ ) was started by Chris Anderson ( https://twitter.com/chr1sa ) (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!
