Freescale Smart Car Malaysia 2008

Freescale Smart Car Competition is held in Dewan Sirim where it is somewhere near UITM in Shah Alam. There are all together 28 teams from 11 university in Malaysia took part in this competition. During the first day of the competition, we were given a chance to do a trial run on the “real track”. The “real track” I mean here was not really the real track they going to use on the competition but a small track that build with the same material as the real one. All the participants do not know how the real track is before the competition because the track is confidential. Below is the video Universiti Malaysia Sabah (UMS) teams’ trial run.



You can notice that everything going well during the trial run on the small ‘8’ track.

The second day, 13 December 2008 is the day of the competition. Every team had done their full preparation for their smart car and all the cars were being place in the pit. The real track is very challenging.


The person in charge is trying to block the sun light that shine through the window into the track. This is very important because the bright light will influence the performance of the sensor or the camera use by the smart car.





This is the video that show my team’s smart car going off track.

Well, sorry that I can’t show the video of the wining team's car because I don’t have the video with me. So here are some pictures taken when our UMS team becomes champion.

To Anonymous that face motor driver problem.

For your information,we build our own motor driver with a MOSFET,a buffer and relay to switch polarity. It is a very simple motor driver.
