DESCRIPTION OF THE PROGRAM

As part of the 2020 UH AVT class one of the goals was to pull together the resources to allow the class (team) to build a human-scale autonomous vehicle based on an evKart to compete in the 2020 Purdue sponsored international competition evGrandPrix in the Autonomous Masters division. evgrandprix.org/autonomous/ In preparing for that competition the team acquired a base evKart from TopKart (topkartusa.net/ ) and begin working toward building out the autonomous capability. They successfully qualified for the 2020 evGrandPrix only for it to be canceled due to Covid. The AI Racing Tech team is further accepted for the 2021 competition event in Indianapolis next April.
