Practical Course: Autonomous Slotcar Racing


The goal of this practical course to program slotcars (Carrera Digital 132) to enable them to drive autonomously against each other as well as human drivers.
In this practical course, we will make use of probabilistic techniques and machine learning approaches. Thus, it is suggested to have participated in the lecture "Introduction to Mobile Robotics" (even if this is not a hard constraint). Furthermore, programming skills are definitively needed. Students participating in this project will have to work in small teams of two students and each team will have to program their own driver.
