The 2019 UGV Competition challenges students at post-secondary institutions across Canada to develop a scale-model of a fully-automated snow plow during the 2018-19 academic year and brings it to Ottawa for a face-off competition against other student teams.
The competition will be held at the new Ottawa Automated Vehicles L5 Test Facility over the weekend of May 25-26, 2019.
The project will provide students with valuable, real-life capstone projects, as well as a competitive scenario to apply their knowledge from various sectors as they design, integrate and test new hardware and software.
Through the project, the students will also develop critical employment skills such as communications, budgeting, teamwork and collaboration, and learn how to work under pressure, manage limited resources and adapt to changing circumstances. Expertise that will look great on their resumes!
