The IGVC team utilizes vision programming, in-depth electronics, and advanced mechanical techniques to develop a solid 300 lb robot which has the foot print of a small 4 wheeler. This robot has to operate outdoors, off-road, with varying weather conditions, and lighting.
The Intelligent Ground Vehicle Competition is held by the Association of Unmanned Vehicle Systems International. Each year, over thirty teams bring unmanned, autonomous ground vehicles to this event where they must traverse an outdoor obstacle course under computer control and participate in a GPS way point navigation challenge. All teams are also required to give a presentation describing their design and submit a paper outlining their system. Teams are scored by their performance in the autonomous challenge, their presentation, and on the design of the robot.
