For the first time ever this year, a duo of students from Grenoble Institute of Technology’s Phelma engineering school has entered the Freescale Cup, an international student competition in which teams must build and program a smart miniature vehicle capable of navigating a 300-meter circuit, unseen before the actual competition, in the shortest possible amount of time.

What started out as a personal project evolved into a group project for a first-year class, taking the Phelma duo first to the Europe-Africa finals and, now, the European finals. From now until the finals, the duo will be working on improving their car’s performance, and, especially, the camera, sensors, and embedded software that will keep the vehicle on the track even at high speeds.

Find out who the winner is on April 29 in Turin!
