Autonomous Innovative Vehicle Design Challenge

Challenging 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 umlaut for their technical and financial support! The competition is held at our annual Innovative Vehicle Design Challenge Day.

Student teams compete at the IVD Challenge in performance, engineering and craftsmanship, design innovation, ambassadorship, and presentation categories and this year’s umlaut’s Innovation Award and scholarship program!

Join the challenge.

Registration for this project 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. The program launches with professional development in early October. Payment is due in January. Square One will provide fundraising ideas and letters of support. In cooperation with our industry partner umlaut, Square One is pleased to offer four $500 scholarships to graduating seniors participating on a Square One Autonomous IVD team!
