The Swarmies Are Coming! NASA Swarmathon

Apr 18, 2017 09:00 AM - Apr 20, 2017 06:00 PM Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex

NASA’s Swarmathon will take place April 18-20 at Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex. Swarmies are small robotic vehicles that operate autonomously and can be programmed to interact as a collective swarm. Organized by the University of New Mexico and funded by the NASA Minority University Research Program, the Swarmathon competition is a challenge to develop cooperative robotics that will revolutionize space exploration.

Visitors are invited to watch the competition located in Parking Lot 3. Watch as students challenged to develop search algorithms that improve resource retrieval over large territories using robotic swarms. Event participants will have the opportunity to improve their skills in robotics and computer science and further advance technology for future NASA space exploration missions.
