I know what you mean. I was hoping to just reuse my rover from last year. Now I have to do some work! ;)

Re: Speed Demon Track - Blue Boards

For reference, my 1/5th scale could push the hoop around the course and even turn corners dragging it, but I wouldn't count on that working every time. :D I believe even for an rock climbing truck at like 1/10th scale the wall is not passable. I used brute force to ramp over it, but it was very risk...

Re: AVC 2018... with aerial competition?

The 2017 Sparkfun AVC was held at the Denver Maker faire, and given the turnout (especially for combat bots) I'd think they will have it at the same venue again this year. There are many more concerns then just 107 when it comes to drones, and I'm willing to bet they aren't willing to tackle all the...

Re: How to build an AVC Robot for the speed demons competition

go visit https://diyrobocars.com/ for some information on building a donkey car or other suggested rovers there. Then look at http://www.bot-thoughts.com/ at his previous posts about his rover databus. Those will hopefully get you started. Sensors go from the very simple, to scanning lidar units and...

Re: Winner's Point Break Down

Thanks for the break down. I'm not sure exactly how the score broke down, because I avoided the hoop and ramp. I was under the impression my score was 465 after the first heat. It got a little shaky after that, because I never saw my score after second heat. Issues with wifi meant the scores were no...

Re: Contest idea - TAG

So, if my bot "tags" your bot hard enough so you cannot move, I win? :lol: It's an interesting idea. To me, you need to have some way of finding the other bot. So mandate some type of tag/color rectangle of a certain size that must be on all 4 sides of the bot? (Provided by host of event) How do you...

Re: Autonomous Car Wars Power restriction

since no one else has responded, I'll take a guess at it... The 1440W restriction was due to the connection with Power Racing Series, which is their limit. So, if the rules don't specifically state it, I'm sure you should be fine with more. That being said, don't go too crazy.. I doubt the winners w...

Hoop?

Is the hoop really going to be slanted like shown in the track layout for the Speed Demon Rules?

Re: Barrel clearance

On a related note... what happens if a competitor knocks over a barrel and there is no longer a clear route?

Re: AVC Pit Area

If you are really worried about security you'll have to have someone else watch your stuff. Get to know the people at the tables near you..or/and bring someone along. I never have had issues, don't know of anyone that has. Couple words of warning. If you come on Friday for testing, do not expect to ...

Re: AVC 2016

My money would be on it being relatively similar to last year. I've noticed that almost all participating vehicles in the past two competitions were driven by electric motors https://avc.sparkfun.com/2014/scores & https://avc.sparkfun.com/2015/scores . The only exception to this trend appears to be...
