Student Competitions

Rose-Hulman High School Autonomous Vehicle Challenge

The Rose-Hulman High School Autonomous Vehicle Challenge, fashioned around the NXP Cup, is designed to be the outcome of a semester-long course that teaches students to develop control algorithms, program embedded micro-controllers, and work with sensors. This competition challenges student teams to build an autonomous model car to go around a closed-circuit track in the shortest possible time.

Students use Model-Based Design with MATLAB and Simulink to prototype, simulate, deploy, and validate algorithms on the NXP Freedom Board.
