Imperial Outreach hosted the NXP Freescale Cup UK Qualifier event in conjunction with HiPEDS. Having worked on the cars as part of their group project earlier this academic year, our CDT students were able to share their own experiences with the participants over lunch.
The NXP Cup is a robotics competition based around an autonomous car which must be programmed to follow a track (the layout of which is not pre-determined) without any intervention. Teams compete from various countries across Europe and the top three from the Imperial qualifier will be competing in the European final in May.
We were delighted to be able to invite some Y13 STEM Potential students to watch the final races on Tuesday 5 April 2016 and are hoping to put together a joint undergraduate and school team for next year’s event from Imperial.
