Being the host unit, Thu Duc College of Technology has expanded the contest to invite in many schools so that students have the opportunity to interact, learn and exchange knowledge about embedded programming and create interest in learning about embedded systems research in particular and science in general.
There are 14 teams from 7 units (each team consists of two members). Each team has to pass 2 round. Round 1, teams must complete removable structural parts of the car and examined the functions of the car, check the vehicle in a straight line, curve as request.
