TurtleBot3 AutoRace

TurtleBot3 AutoRace challenges student teams to make a ROS-enabled TurtleBot3 robot that completes missions during driving. The robot should follow the track, recognizing lane markers, objects, and traffic signs with various sensors such as Lidar, camera, and ultrasonic sensors. To do this, you can make robust and efficient software by applying Model-Based Design with MATLAB and Simulink.
