Freescale Smart Car Competition 2008

Freescale Smart Car Competition 2008. This is what I have been doing after finish my final exam during this semester. Well, just come back from Kuala Lumpur yesterday and now can start to blog again. This is the first time this Smart Car Competition being organizes in Malaysia and hence we are all new here. One good news is that we Universiti Malaysia Sabah (UMS) got the champion for this competition. Congratulation again to my course mate Justin Yap and also Wong Cheok Liang. They really spend a lot of time and effort for this competition so they deserve to be Champion.

Well, what is this Smart Car Competition about? Freescale provide us the model of the car, dc motor, battery charger, battery, Microcontroller, and also a programmer. Then you have to use what you got and add in what you wanted to add in to make the car run on the track in the competition. The winner will be the car that finishes a lap with the fastest time. Sounds easy but the process is not as easy as you thought. Below are the product of UMS team and one of the video of our test run in ums lab during the night before we packed up.


That is the track we build ourselves for testing. Due to insufficient of funding, this is the best we can do. However, everything going well on this track.
