SparkFun’s 2010 Autonomus Vehicle Competition

Sparkfun’s competition from last year seemed like a ton of fun.  The basic idea is to create a vehicle that can go completely around SparkFun headquarters in Colorado.  Once the vehicle has started, you cannot assist it with a remote control.  You are however, allowed to retrieve planes from trees, as happened last year. The vehicle can roll, walk, fly or whatever other way of moving you can think of.

Our favorite entrant in this years competition is the cat robot.  Complete with tinfoil to control its brain, the team is not revealing how its new stealth cat controlling technology actually works.  Last year the competition was held on April 15, no word on this years date yet.
