The Fast and the Autonomous
By Matthew Westmoreland
May 15, 2020

In a small corner of Sitterson Hall sits a fleet of pint-size cars that can see and navigate independently, winning races for the team of UNC computer science students that created them. While the stakes are low for these high-tech toys, it’s a completely different game when applied to full-size vehicles in the real world — the application of professor Parasara Sridhar Duggirala’s research.

Researchers Are Using Model Cars to Perfect Autonomous Vehicles
By Vineeth Joel Patel
October 19, 2019

Waymo, Uber, Lyft, Chevrolet, Ford, and more have autonomous cars on public roads in the U.S. Working on autonomous technology isn't a cheap venture, but it's something these brands don't have to worry about, as they have hundreds of millions of dollars to throw at developing the tech. For everyone else, there might be a better alternative – model cars.

These Small Cars Can Help Drive the Autonomous Future
By AARIAN MARSHALL
October 5, 2019

OVER THE NEXT three years, Houssam Abbas will carefully send 80 modified Traxxas RC rally cars—the Ford Fiesta model—to research facilities around the country. Some will go to Arizona State University, others to Clemson University, the State University of New York at Stony Brook, UCLA, Vanderbilt University, or the University of Iowa. In each place, researchers will open their packages, take out the 21-inch, modified, 1/10th-scale car, and begin to run tests.

The "Disparity Extender" Algorithm, and F1/Tenth
By Nathan Otterness
April 22, 2019

Recently, my team from UNC-Chapel Hill won an F1/Tenth competition, held at CPSWeek 2019, in Montreal. For those who don't know, F1/Tenth is an autonomous R/C car race with an emphasis primarily on a common platform--so competition is primarily between algorithms and less about the quality of the physical vehicle.

At New College House, small self-driving cars race each other
By Daniel Wang
November 7, 2018

On Wednesday night, students across the Penn community watched a self-driving car fly through a racetrack in the New College House Dining Pavilion. They were attending the F1/10 Autonomous Racing demonstration, an initiative that encourages students to explore self-driving vehicles by developing a F1 race car at 1/10th of its regular scale.
