Got the word from Peter over at at SparkFun earlier today. He reviewed our video and gave the thumbs up. So we’re officially in the autonomous vehicle contest next month.


New Link: Geeknight’s Entry

Geeknight is coming down from Victoria, BC, Canada for the contest. That’s a heck of a commute. Per his post at SparkFun, he’s looking for good lodging options in the Boulder area. If you have suggestions, let him know.

Coming to SparkFun’s AVC?

SparkFun added a spectator registration site to help predict how many people are coming to view the contest. If you are planning to attend, sign on up and put on a Team Hellhound T-shirt. Wait, we don’t have T-Shirts.

Anyway, let the good folks know if you are planning to attend. How many beers you plan on consuming, etc. How hard can it be? Wait, did they ask how many beers?

Anyway, come on out and support all the crazies.

Update: Fixed the borked registration link to point to the proper page.

Competitor Site Links

March 5, 2010 2 comments

The number of team links for the 2010 SparkFun Autonomous Vehicle Competition seems pretty low this year. Given Sparkfun has chosen to only require a video by April 1st rather than build logs, it might be natural. However, I’m guessing most teams have a website of one form or another.

If you do, and would like a link from us to you, send in a comment. I added a Competitors link section to our site. I’ll be happy to link you in.

On that same note, if you love a company that provides hobby level robotic supplies, let us know about them as well. We all have some favorite sites but many of them are low-volume, low exposure sites. May as well add some free advertising where we can.
