In February 2018 we took some of the brightest engineers from across the world to Queensland, Australia to take part in the world's first 72 Hour Challenge to build a fully autonomous full-scale car.  Five teams took part in the challenge and successfully adapted old Australian classic cars into remote-controlled and self-driving cars.

We are now able to bring to you the same kits that these teams used so that you too can build your own full-scale kit car.  Just send a message through the website or Facebook page and we will help you out!

 

Resources

Throughout the challenge, we and associated people developed a lot of materials that have been made publicly available.  They have been listed below for those interested in taking on a solo challenge to make your own self-driving vehicle.
