We got a lot of great ideas for new contests, and I think that this current form is one that will challenge everyone, but that should be easy enough for everyone to attempt!

Simply put, it's autonomous cars racing around a track... with guns....

Yeah, it should be cool :)

All the details are at http://defconbots.org/defcon17/

Over the next 2 months or so we'll be building the demo bot & software, so we'll play-test the contest using that. The rules will change a bit I'm sure, so if you have any specific concerns then please post them here!

The #1 goal I have is to get more people involved, I'd love it if some teams would share their project progress and some of the basic code (like how to read sensors, etc) then that would really help out the new people!
