On April 23rd, a hundred or more robot geeks will descend upon Boulder Colorado for the 3rd Annual Autonomous Vehicle Competition hosted by our friends at SparkFun.

Last year’s event saw over 20 teams with upwards of 400 spectators. This year looks to double that with over 40 teams registered. The competition is evolving from its roots of simply “circumnavigate the SparkFun building” to include more challenges, obstacles, and awards.
