Sparkfun 2010 Autonomous Vehicle Competition

Despite less than perfect weather, this year’s AVC was a remarkable event. On land as well as in the air, several vehicles were able to finish 100% of the track. In addition, certain airplanes demonstrated autonomous takeoff and landing. The official event page and Twitter trend contain much information about the event; I just wanted to share several pictures that I’ve made while spectating. Enjoy,

Oleg.
