SparkFun AVC Recap

September 26, 2018 11:07 pm | By Kyla Qi

SparkFun AVC was in Boulder County from September 7th to 9th. Our RoboRacing and BattleBots three pounder team competed in the AVC Classic Collegiate division and Combat Bot Beetleweight division respectively.

Sedani performed the best out of the collegiate teams, netting us a first-place medal in the Speed Demon event.
Three pounder Chewii fought hard and won a match before falling to electrical issues.
RoboRacing’s hard work over the past year led to improvements on Bigolii, but a day full of unforeseen issues prevented Bigolii from finishing the Autonomous Car Wars event.
We’re excited to improve our designs and come back next year!

You can learn more about Sparkfun AVC and view this year’s results at avc.sparkfun.com.

Hackaday featured us in their coverage of the 10th Anniversary of SparkFun AVC! Watch the video below:
