Overview

RoboRacing is RoboJackets’ autonomous racing team. We build capable robots with car-style chassis and program them to navigate themselves around obstacles at high speed. Our team started in 2013, initially competing in the International Autonomous Robot Racing Challenge (IARRC) competition and has come in first place twice in the last four years. Now, RoboRacing also competes in Sparkfun’s Autonomous Vehicle Competition (AVC).

The Competitions 

IARRC Competition

Each year, teams compete in drag and circuit races without any human intervention. Teams are scored based on their performance (read: speed) in the races, as well as written reports and oral presentations. The IARRC competition is held at the University of Toronto in Ontario, Canada.

Sparkfun AVC

Compete to build and program the best autonomous cars to navigate obstacles as quickly as possible. RC-sized cars compete in Speed Demons, while Autonomous Car Wars is the domain of our go-kart-sized ride-along car. Teams are scored on a structured basis involving their performance in the race. The competition is held at Denver’s Maker Faire.
