Robot control tasks will be driven by the two main challenges of the annual [[Intelligent Ground Vehicles Competition -> http://www.igvc.org]]:  the ''navigation challenge,'' which involves visiting waypoints in a 1-acre field given GPS data and the presence of barrels, sawhorses, and other physical obstacles, and the ''autonomous challenge,'' which requires the robot to stay inside a pair of painted lines in a 0.1" mile outdoor course.  See [[http://www.igvc.org | www.igvc.org]] for more details.
