We here at SparkFun like to think that we exist in the same group as our customers - curious students, engineers, prototypers, and hobbyists who love to create. We are snowboarders and rock-climbers, painters and musicians, engineers and writers - but we all have one thing in common...we love electronics! We want to use electronics to make art projects, gadgets, and robots. We live, eat, and breathe this stuff!
The SparkFun Autonomous Vehicle Competition (or AVC) is SparkFun's signature event where robotics enthusiasts from around the world come together for a day of intense competition, innovation and - most importantly - fun. In 2013, the AVC outgrew its old location (at SparkFun HQ) and moved to the Boulder Reservoir. This year, we'll be back at "The Res" on the outskirts of sunny Boulder, Colorado.
There are a few notable changes to the race for this year - please see our event page on the SparkFun site for more details.
In addition to the races there will be games, food and prizes. We're looking forward to what will surely be a great day of robotics! Hope you'll join us!
AVC 2014 opens to the public at 9am on Saturday the 21st!
