The Mobot Race Finals!
Mobot Slalom and MoboJoust
12:00 pm - Race Courses in Front of Wean.

The School of Computer Science invites all members of the Carnegie Mellon community to participate in The Seventh Annual Carnegie Mellon Mobot Races, in the spring of 2001 (April 20!). Participants will race autonomous vehicles ("MObile roBOTs") they have built along a slalom-type course on the paved walk in front of Wean Hall and/or The purpose of the competition is to generate technological excitement, provide hands-on experience for our undergraduates, and showcase the cleverness and technical competence of Carnegie undergraduates and other community members (including alumni). We hope to stimulate inter-disciplinary activity toward producing something that is technically noteworthy.

The MOBOT Slalom Race
Race of autonomous vehicles (MObile roBOTs) along a slalom course on the paved walk in front of Wean Hall.
The MoboJoust Competition
A head-to-head competition between autonomous vehicles that resembles two knights battling on horseback.

This competition is sponsored by the Carnegie Mellon School of Computer Science with support from Dell Computer Corporation, Harris Corporation, Laurel Networks Inc., Lockheed Martin, and Trilogy Inc.

The Robotics Institute is part of the School of Computer Science, Carnegie Mellon University.
