Topic:International F1/10 Autonomous Racing Competition
Supervisor:Joel Matějka
Announce as:PTO
Description:Building autonomous cars is a challenging task. You can be part of the team that has experience with such cars and try to build your own model of a race car to take part in the F1/10 racing competition.

The main task is to drive around corridors and hallways in a building avoiding any static (walls, plastic barriers, ...) and dynamic obstacles (other cars). You will use existing car model based on Ubuntu, ROS, NVIDIA Jetson TX2, and implement a local trajectory planner and a motion estimation algorithm in C++/Python.

The competition will take place at the CPS Week 2018 in Portugal.



Instructions

1. Get familiar with Ubuntu, ROS, the existing car model and hardware (NVIDIA TX2).
2. Implement and integrate a local trajectory planner and a motion estimation algorithm into existing software components. Use any C++/Python packages.
3. WIN!
