RC Car Racing: A Navigation Challenge

Introduction

This contest will show off the autonomous navigation with a RC car. Winners will be chosen based on time and accuracy of navigation to specific points within the contest environment.

Goal

The objective of this contest is to encourage entrants to create a robust and fast robot navigation software to control an RC car with a laser range finder. There are a few milestones that a RC car must visit. The map of the environment is generated by a SLAM algorithm but the accurate location of a RC car is not given, so the RC car needs to estimate its location using the laser range finder. The goal of the contest is to visit all milestones in the fastest time without collision.

Details

Localization

Unlike simulations, the true location of the RC car is unknown in the real track. Therefore the RC car should infer the location of itself by the given map data and laser scan data from the environment.

Path Planning

The path planning algorithm generate a path to visit all milestones in the given map. To generate a proper path that the RC car can follow, dynamics of the RC car (e.g., rotation angle, speed, ...) should be considered while generating path.
