Carolo Cup

The Carolo Cup is student competition at TU Braunschweig on construction of autonomous model cars.

For many years - starting in 2006 - teams from HAW Hamburg have participated in this competition. Here you find an overview about the miniature cars, that were developed for the Carolo Cup and the results. For further details have a look at the different platforms presented.

Overview

2020

TeamWorstCase placed first in the Basic Cup.

While ensuring to have a reasonable realisitic bodywork, TeamWorstCase approaced the design differently than the years before. Instead of attaching the camera on a tower with the maximum size, the camera was mounted behind the windshield like it is done in real modern cars.

2019

Even though the car from 2019 did not participate in the Carolo Cup it was designed by its standards. The two reseach goals were on the one hand to let the car drive autonomously in Miniatur Wunderland in Hamburg and on the other hand to collect image data for machine learning methods.
