The Workshop

From the 22nd until the 24th of February 2019 the second Autonomous Racing Workshop will be hosted at the Hamburg University of Technology.

Our goal for the workshop is to bring Formula Student Driverless teams together for an informal exchange. We will provide the framework for a networking event where teams can present their work in talks and discuss topics with fellow students from other universities.

All Formula Student Driverless Teams, independent of prior or future participation in official events, are invited to join us in Hamburg, free of charge. The Autonomous Racing Workshop is organized by current and former members of the Formula Student Team e-gnition Hamburg.

The event consists of two main elements: Talks of experts from the industry that will give a short insight into their autonomous driving applications and open talk sessions on the other hand. The open sessions will consist of prepared talks, open discussions, programming sessions or demos on topics concerning autonomous racing. Therefore, the workshop lives from the participation of all registered teams.

FAQ

What is the ARWo and how does it work?

The goal for the workshop is to bring Formula Student Driverless teams together for an informal exchange. We will provide the framework for a networking event where teams can present their work in talks and discuss topics with fellow students from other universities.

The workshop is only as good as it’s participants. In order to have a great workshop we are asking YOU to prepare material in your field of knowledge (relevant to FSD). Even if some great idea you had didn’t turn out to work that great it might be worth sharing. Supporting material really helps the exchange and is highly appreciated and very useful to be used in discussions to better explain and visualize thoughts, concepts, ideas, problems and solutions. Wihtout preperation of materials the effectiveness of Workshops declines drastically, mostly due to our very limited time together.

Once the event starts, you are invited to suggest discussion topics in the “mopad” and signing up to the topics you are interested in. Discussions / Talks on specific topics are allocated to the time-slots and rooms according to demand. This will be done late friday evening to form our schedule for the weekend.

Talks

If you feel like you (or maybe someone else on your team) would be prepare a small Talk about a topic of your interest please let us now. Such Talks would be an excellent addition to the event and are most welcome. Just contact us via mail info@arwo.hamburg.
