Cars of the Future

The driverless future has arrived, with companies such as Ford, Volkswagon, Volvo, BMW and NuTonomy putting driverless cars on the road as soon as 2018.

This beginner to intermediate level workshop introduces students to the basics of programming logic and processes, but also extends to navigating a driverless Arduino car around a track. You will learn computational modelling methods to control digital and analogue inputs and outputs along with sensors to plan the behaviour of the car along the route.

Visitors can compete for the quickest time around the circuit and for the fastest straight line speed.
