The Workshop

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 Short insights into their autonomous driving applications
> Open talk sessions which 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.

Stay up-to-date!

More information about the workshop will follow by mail or on the Instagram account of e-gnition Hamburg. If you are not yet part of the ARWo family and would like to participate, please subscribe to our mailing list below.

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 its participants. In order to have a great workshop we are asking YOU to prepare material in your field of knowledge (relevant to FSD). Be it unfollowed ideas, failed concepts or impossible solutions, all of these might be worth sharing with others. 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.

After the registration is closed, we will provide you with an online platform to schedule all prepared talks and suggest discussion topics and workshop sessions. You will be notified via e-mail when the tool is opened.

Talks and Posters

All participating teams are required to prepare a poster about their driverless concept. We will discuss those in a poster session with food and drinks on friday evening. This poster session will help all teams to see different concepts and spark some ideas for their own development. The poster is mandatory for all teams, even if you did not build a DV car yet. You can use the chance to present your ideas and concepts for a DV car to a broad audience with valuable FSD experience. We will contact all participating teams for further details about the posters via e-mail.

In addition, teams are requested to prepare talks for the ARWo. Preparing a talk is mandatory if you want to bring more than three team members. Further information will be announced when registration is open.

If you have further questions or ideas for contributions to the ARWo, contact us via mail info@arwo.hamburg.
