Autonomous Racing: Cooperative Racing

The main idea of this project is to make the students interested in autonomous robotics and real-time systems, as well as the improving of the competitive F1/10 Autonomous Racing team of TU Dortmund University.

In this project, we follow the recommendations of the F1/10 Autonomous Racing Competition and provide all the necessary components, e.g., Traxxas F1 type platforms, sensors, racing tracks and an experimental environment. With the given materials, students have to design, build and test their autonomous navigation strategy on a 1:10 scale racecar. Students will learn to use the robot operating system (ROS2), integrate various sensors (IMU, Cameras, LIDAR) on an embedded computer (Nvidia Jetson TX2 / Nvidia Xavier NX), and implement their own algorithms for localization, mappath planning, and control.
