Autonomous Innovative Vehicle Design Challenge

Square One’s Autonomous Innovative Vehicle Design project challenges students to re-engineer a “Power Wheels Jeep” into an autonomous vehicle. Utilizing Arduino technology, GPS and sensors, Autonomous IVD vehicles must traverse a challenge course and avoid obstacles without driver assistance!  Thanks to P3 for their technical and financial support!  Competition will be held May 11 at Kettering University in Flint MI.

Student teams compete at the Innovative Vehicle Design Challenge Day  in performance, engineering and craftsmanship, design innovation, ambassadorship and presentation categories and this year’s P3 Innovation Award and scholarship program!

Cost for this program is $4,600 and includes the base vehicle, a full day of professional development for 1-2 teachers per school, five high school student team members, project parameters, innovation budget, and one competition.  Program launches with professional development in early October.  Payment is due January 20, 2019.  Square One will provide fundraising ideas and letters of support.

In partnership with P3, Square One is pleased to offer four $500 scholarships to graduating seniors participating on a Square One Autonomous IVD team!

Autonomous IVD Scholarship Application will be released in February 2018:
