Event Description
AI Futures, by Mantel Technologies, is hosting our first AI Ground Vehicle Challenge at MSU, to help kick off Engineering Week. The AIGVC event is a full day, 8 hour educational competition. We will provide lunch, drinks, and cash prizes for winning teams. We'll be in STEM Building, room 2201 on Saturday, February 18th from 10 am - 6 pm.

The event begins with an introduction to our program and to hosting staff, ambassadors, and our competition proctor. The competition is a series of challenges that start easily but grow in difficulty as teams progress. Initial challenges include creating an interface to the robotic vehicle over SSH (secure shell connection). Once your team achieves connectivity, the proctor will give you a key to submit to the game server to receive points and you will be given access to the second challenge and so on. The more difficult a challenge, the more points awarded. During the event the proctor will be available and walking between teams to assist progress. We're giving cash prizes for first, second, and third place finishers. This is a great event for all engineering majors, DA, CS, and any AI enthusiasts.

We hope you'll join us! Registration available at or email Please direct any questions through Handshake or aifutures email.
