Celestial Pancake - Vivid Sydney 2019
CREATE hosts their own series of projects that provide opportunities for makers across any faculty to collaborate on team-based endeavours.
The Droid Racing Challenge (DRC) is a robotics competition hosted annually by the
Queensland University of Technology (QUT) for three years running. Its aim is to
design and build small, autonomous vehicles which can race around a track against
one other competitor using only computer vision and ultrasonic sensors. Each year,
CREATE hosts internal competitions and sends the two most successful teams up to
participate in the competition.
We have found continuing success with new teams taking up the challenge, with CREATE placing 1st in 2016 and 2017 and 3rd in 2018. In building and programming their vehicles, our project members learn invaluable skills including hardware design, electrical interfacing and programming autonomous driving functions.
