IoT Hackathon & RC-Racing at GITAM
Department of Electrical, Electronics and Communication Engineering (EECE), School of Technology, GITAM, Hyderabad will organize a two-day national level technical event IoT Hackathon & RC (remote-controlled) Car Race in the name of ‘Techquinox’ at its campus on 20-21 March 2023, in association with IEEE Student Chapter. Prof. T.Madhavi, HoD, EECE has informed in a press release on Wednesday.

The hackathon is based on IoT and 30 hours, nerve-wracking problem statements, and an environment full of code and logic, to create feasible, viable, and simplified solutions.
RC-Racing is a fun and exciting event where participants will be racing with remote-controlled cars and a challenging race track to compete with other players. It is proposed to design and build a manually controlled car, pass through the obstacles in the arena, and complete the race task within less time.
