26th Annual IGVC

26th Annual Intelligent Ground Vehicle Competition (IGVC)

Students in robotics, from electrical engineers to business majors, gathered at the 26th Annual Intelligent Ground Vehicle Competition (IGVC) at Oakland University June 1-4, 2018. IGVC offers a design experience at the very cutting edge of engineering education. It is multidisciplinary, theory-based, hands-on, team implemented, outcome assessed, and based on product realization. It encompasses the very latest technologies impacting industrial development and taps subjects of high interest to students. Design and construction of an Intelligent Vehicle fits well in a two semester senior year design capstone course, or an extracurricular activity earning design credit.

The competition pitches robotics teams from universities and colleges around the world against one another in a variety of autonomous-related events. The four-day event includes three different competitions, an auto-navigation course, a design competition, and what's called a, "Interoperable Profiles" competition.
