Renesas MCU Car Rally

European Renesas MCU Car Rally at embedded world

The Renesas MCU Car Rally is the perfect opportunity for students to combine practical learning and fun!

During the winter semester, participating student teams supported by their tutor or professor work to build a self-guided model car from a kit of components supplied by Renesas. The challenge is to optimize the hardware and software that auto drives the car along the white line on the track.

At the embedded world trade fair in Nuremberg, Germany, all teams come together to compete with each other and find out who built the fastest MCU Car in Europe – and the winners are awarded attractive prizes. Around the race, students and educators enjoy a great event including the visit of the trade fair and dinner with all teams and Renesas staff. Dinner and accommodation are provided by Renesas.
