The International Ground Vehicle Ground Competition (IGVC) is an annual event that brings together teams of college students from all over the globe to compete in an autonomous ground vehicle competition. Teams are tasked to design and construct a fully autonomous unmanned robotic vehicle that can navigate around a challenging outdoor obstacle course under a prescribed time. This year’s IGVC went down in June at Oakland University, and while the competition was stiff, only one team could come out on top. That team was Lawrence Teach University (LTU), whose robot, Bigfoot 2, was built using the Husky UGV robotic platform.
