2 comments

The Freescale Cup is a global competition where student teams build, program, and race a model car around a track for speed. The fastest car to complete the track without derailing, wins. The development of this autonomous car requires:
·      Embedded software programming and basic circuit creation using Freescale parts included in the entry kit.
·      Participants to create motor control hardware and software to propel and steer their intelligent car.
·      Participants must also interface to a camera to navigate the car through the race course by following the guide line.


We participated in The Freescale Cup-2012. Here is the video of the preliminary round.
