Welcome to SparkFun's Eight Annual Autonomous Vehicle Competition! Every year we host teams from around the country and around the world to build self-driving robots to navigate a course filled with challenges and obstacles. This year we will be hosting four competitions:

- Autonomous Power Wheels
- Combat Bots (arena-fighting robots)
We will also be hosting workshops where you can learn to solder, use conductive thread to sew eTextile projects, and apply copper tape for basic circuitry. Or learn from the experts on the future of the Internet of Things and ways to play with Arduino and Raspberry Pi.
