Background

Why AI?

To the general public, Artificial Intelligence (AI) is complicated and impossible to understand. However, it’s an approach to managing and processing data; it’s rooted in engineering; a way of problem-solving and designing solutions in an entirely new way

 

Why Formula-Edge?

Edge computing is computing that’s done at or near the source of the data, without the need of subscribing to a public cloud, reducing overall entry barrier to learn and apply the latest AI technology, making it more approachable to teachers and students.

 

Why self-driving cars?

Amid the idea of a self-driving car is actively studied and tested for use on the road, with many open-source software, powerful single boards computers (which are widely used in schools around the world) and machine learning tools available on the market, it becomes easier for teachers and students to create a self-driving vehicle.

 

Objectives:

The 3-day competition aims to motivates students to learn the latest AI technology without the need of expensive equipment via constructing such a car on a small-scale using parts and software that are accessible to anyone on an affordable budget.

 

Expected outcome:

  • Build up participants’ skills in coding (python), robotics and building intelligent AI model
  • Strengthen participants’ skills in team building and critical thinking
  • Serve as a simple testbed for different ideas in self-driving vehicles
