I’d seriously enjoy having the opportunity to talk to you about your plans if you’re moving, or if you know someone who is considering a move, and needs some straight answers.

This year’s event will include an aerial and ground vehicle course, new class categories and new market checkpoints. To register a vehicle visit https://avc.sparkfun.com/.

Here’s some more info straight from the Sparkfun website:

If you’ve been before, get excited because the AVC will be a bit different this year. If you’ve never been, you’re in for a treat! This year the AVC will be held at the Boulder Reservoir on June 8th, 2013 from 8:30am until 4pm.

For 2013 we’re allowing all manner of autonomous vehicle, if you can build it you can bring it. Anything goes, from multirotor aircraft to any size rover you can imagine. In another departure from years past, we’re not going to limit the number of entries, so sign up!

Finally, the location has changed. Instead of having it at our world headquarters, we’ll be having it across the highway at the Boulder Reservoir. The course has changed, but the goal is still the same – to navigate the course autonomously. Having “The Res” as our host also allows us to have quadcopters again, so bring on the multirotors!

 

There are several vehicle classes,

Student Class,

Micro/PBR, Doping Class,

Non-Traditional Locomotion,

and Peloton (that’s all the rest that don’t fit into one of these other classes)
