3689685313?profile=originalIt's sad that Sparkfun removed the aerial category from the AVC, but the silver lining is that this year they've added an totally insane new category: autonomous go-karts with humans aboard who can't steer.  I love the motto: "Trust your code? Prove it."

From the announcement post:

The 2016 PRS AVC will have four options:

  • Power Wheels Racing: You want to hack a Power Wheels and race it? Go for it. Straight up human skill and reaction speed FTW.
  • Classic AVC: You want to reuse an autonomous car from a previous AVC? Go for it. There will be a 25-pound limit.
  • Autonomous Power Wheels Racing: We’re calling this A+PRS. The main difference between Classic AVC and A+PRS is that you must carry a passenger. Yep! Time to get some skin in the game.
  • BattleBots: This was immensely popular last year. If you’ve got a one-pound or three-pound combat robot, bring it.
