Finals of the FormulaPi autonomous car race

Love this -- it's both thrilling and charmingly shambolic at the same time.  FormulaPi was the model for our DIYRobocar race/hack series of events.  The race starts at 7:04.

It's interesting that although some competitors tried very ambitious neural-network learning approaches to the contest, the winner just tuned the stock code with some better PID values.

The consensus from everyone is that the Pi Zero just doesn't have enough horsepower for proper AI.  The organizers are considering switching to Raspberry Pi 3 for the next season, which I heartily endorse.

  • It looks like the sensors are more sensitive to green colour than others?
