A showcase of the droids raced at the 2017 Droid Racing Challenge.

Visitors will have the chance to see autonomous droids and learn about the processes and technology used in designing these machines.

The Droid Racing Challenge attracts universities from around Australia and New Zealand, to design a vehicle that is capable of completing a race around an obstacle filled track autonomously, using a range of sensors and methods of actuation. Computer vision is a key component of this competition with some of the droids using advanced machine learning techniques to detect their surroundings.
