Autonomous Vehicle Driving Competition using FPGA

Dear ROS community members,

Are you interesting for ROS/robot with FPGA technology?

We are currently planning an Autonomous Vehicle Driving Competition using FPGA. It will be held in the International Conference on Field-Programmable Technology (FPT).

Although the robot car must be designed mainly on FPGAs, you can also use hardcore processors inside FPGAs (e.g., Xilinx Zynq, Intel Altera SoC) so that you can use a lot of ROS applications for your design.

(*) Application and paper submission deadlines: September 15, 2018.
However, you can continuously develop your car until December 11, 2018.
You still have much time for developing the robot car with ROS/FPGA!!

Could you try on the design competition?

If you have any questions, please send an e-mail to “watanabe.minoru[at]”.
(Please substitute @ for [at]. This is the contact person of FPT2018 FPGA Design Competition Chair, Prof. Minoru Watanabe)


If you are interested in autonomous vehicles you should definitely take a look at our Autonomous Robot Challenge!
We are giving away loads of hardware and advising to use ROS and the Ultra96 FPGA board from 96 boards in addition to many other options.
