Smart Car Contest

The Smart Car Contest challenges student teams to design, build, and race model cars with intelligent car technology (ICT)—the same technology that engineers use to develop safety and efficiency systems for antilock braking and computerized engine management. Applying Model-Based Design with MATLAB and Simulink products lets your team efficiently develop control, signal processing, image and video processing, mechatronics, and embedded systems helps your team complete its mission.
