The Desafio 100km 1liter race: The challenge is not only to cover the distance of 100 km with only 1 liter of gas (235 MPG) but to compete with other participants in a race using cars developed with open source hardware.
After registering, student teams build a vehicle using Open Hardware and participate in the race in 2014. It will take place in south Brazil on the island of Florianópolis.
Three of the organizers of the Desafio will speak at the Open Hardware Summit: Jean-Luc Wingert, who designed the event, will talk in the “Collective Innovation” session about the mix of collaboration, competition and open hardware in this event. Rodrigo Magri and Brener Martins will also be present.
Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
