IARRC Result 2019 – First Place!

RoboRacing is a competitive robotics team geared towards autonomous racing of small scale automotive platforms. The team started in 2013 and has since built robots to compete in the IARRC competition since the team's inception, as well as the Sparkfun AVC competition since 2016. RoboRacing is additionally planning on competing in the evGrand Prix Autonomous competition in 2020.

RoboRacing puts its members at the forefront of emerging technology in self-driving cars through involvement in autonomous RC vehicle design, fabrication, and programming. Each competition has proven to be a great learning opportunity for everything from robust mechanical design to advanced programming skills that could be applied to diverse engineering applications.
