The competition deals with the obstacle avoidance of carbon free vehicles. There are three types of racing: figure 8 racing, S-curve racing and electric vehicle racing. Before entering the semifinals and finals, competitors have to design and manufacture the carbon-free vehicles in advance and submit a manual of how the vehicles are produced. The competition evaluates students’ innovative thinking, engineering knowledge and practical skills from multiple aspects.
Beihang Engineering Training Center combines the course “Cultivation of Innovation Ability” with the competition, and a special steering committee is appointed to provide guidance for the teams participating in the competition. six teams stood out from the crowd in the intra-university contest and entered the competition on behalf of Beihang this year.
