  7. Oakland University to host 26th annual Intelligent Ground Vehicle Competition

    The Intelligent Ground Vehicle Competition (IGVC), which provides an opportunity for engineers and computer scientists from around the world to compete with their uniquely-designed autonomous unmanned vehicles, will return June 1-4 to Oakland University.

    “Student teams participating in IGVC not only immerse themselves in robotics and autonomy but engage in multiple classic systems engineering challenges,” said Gerald Lane, president of Great Lakes Systems & Technology LLC.

    Lane and Dr. KaC Cheok, an OU engineering professor, serve as co-founders and co-chairmen of the IGVC, which challenges teams to build and operate autonomous robotic vehicles on an outdoor course with defined lanes, GPS waypoints and obstacles. The four-day competition is held annually on Oakland’s campus.

    In 2017, over 35 teams from 32 colleges and universities participated in the competition, including OU’s own Oakland Robotics Association. This year, more than 40 teams are expected to participate in the event.

    “IGVC is a full-spectrum educational and practical experience, spanning requirements such as analysis, design, fabrication, testing, debugging, documenting, reporting, product presentation and endurance while working as a team throughout,” Lane said.

    During the competition, each team will participate in a series of challenges, including:

    • Auto-Nav Challenge: Vehicles autonomously navigate an outdoor course while negotiating obstacles and maneuvering using GPS coordinates to complete the course in the minimum amount of time

    • Design Competition: A written report is submitted, then an oral presentation and vehicle demonstration are presented to the IGVC Design Judge Panel

    • Inter-Operability Profile (IOP) Challenge: Vehicles perform with the IOP open architecture for unmanned systems.

    This year’s competition will also include the Self-Drive Challenge, which will feature street legal, 25 mph fully autonomous vehicles demonstrating their autonomous street driving capabilities, as well as parking and track driving maneuvers.

    “The IGVC experience challenges engineering and computer science students and, at the end of the competition, produces engineers and computer scientists who are ready for their first job,” Lane said.

    The IGVC competition is held in the field on the southwest corner of Adams Road and Walton Boulevard.
