Droid Racing Challenge 2021

Beginning in 2016, QUT Robotics Club has hosted the Droid Racing Challenge – a friendly competition where universities from around Australia and the world are invited to bring their automated bots to traverse an obstacle course!

Sadly, our 2020 competition had to be cancelled due to COVID-19, but we are excited to be running it again this year!

There are changes to the rules this year so please be sure to read them. Otherwise, we hope to see everyone at QUT again this year.

Make sure you check back here regularly as more information is released.  Alternatively, Like us on Facebook or join our Discord, and we’ll let you know whenever this page is updated.

Best of luck to all teams!
