A team of students, members of Integra AGH, came third in the F1TENTH championship that took place in South Korea. The competition was for autonomous bolides in the 1:10 scale, built on the basis of radio controlled vehicles, equipped with LIDARs (Light Detection and Ranging), with the optional depth camera.
In total, 10 teams were qualified to participate in the competition, mostly from Asia. The AGH UST was the only European representative. The competition began with a time task during which each bolide had to ride the track for 5 minutes. The final results were calculated with regard to the number of laps and the best lap time. Based on these, the organisers compiled a 1 on 1 racing schedule. The AGH UST team won two of three races, competing with teams from Thailand and South Korea.
Four members of Integra AGH worked on the bolide: Aleksandra Lis, Artur Morys–Magiera, Jakub Pudło, and Andrzej Papierok. All of them are students at the Faculty of Electrical Engineering, Automatics, Computer Science, and Biomedical Engineering, with which the student research club is associated.
The team has already begun preparations to compete in the F1TENTH championships in London.
The 2022 F1TENTH Korea Championship took place between December 12 and 13, 2022 on the Jeju Island. The event was part of the The Annual Autumn Conference of the Korean Society of Manufacturing Technology Engineers (KSMTE) 2022.
