What is Autonomous Car?

Autonomous Car
In the IVD autonomous cars, members will utilize their critical thinking and technological skills to build upon a small plastic vehicle and program an autonomous innovative vehicle. They will have to come up with an innovative design, including motion sensors, GPS, and python, to design it, test it, and modify it. The vehicle would be required to travel through a challenging course, avert obstacles, and complete difficult tasks.The vehicle would be scored based on its ability to avoid obstacles,its level of autonomy, and the complexity of the tasks it accomplishes. During the program members will have to work together to not only come up with an innovative solution but also manage the timeline, plan a budget, and practice their public speaking.
