The Automobile Control and Electronic Laboratory of Hanyang University(HYU) is planning to organize the first Global Advance Intelligent Miniature Vehicles Competition, sponsored by an organization called “Freescale,” which holds competitions for miniature automobiles. The event will take place on October 30 in the Olympic Sports Complex Building at HYU. Unlike the former miniature vehicles competitions in which only Korean students could participate, this time the competition will be held on a global scale where students from all over the globe will be able to compete against one another. The aim of the competition is to foster interest and passion in future automotive vehicles among university students.
Ten teams have signed up for the competition, consisting of Korean students as well as those from China, Japan, the United States, and some European countries, all selected to represent their respective countries. The teams will be divided into groups A and B, and the best team from each group will compete against each other in the final match.
According to the Automobile Control and Electronic Laboratory, the competitors will be ranked according to the following criteria: staying on the track, proficiency of the automobiles in speeding up within the speed limit, and lastly, the ability of the automobile to stop in front of an obstacle placed just before the finish line. The points earned from these areas will be added up for total evaluation points. Annually, Automobile Control and Electronic Laboratory of HYU has been putting huge efforts trying to globalize its automobile competitions in order to develop the critical technology of vehicle on safety and convenience.
