RARS Racers

Cars on track

The Robot Auto Racing Simulator is an open racing-game engine which allows computer programmers to compete in writing AI (artificial intelligence) robots which race each other, following the annual Formula 1 schedule. You can get more information on the competition in general, including full source code, rules for participation, and access to mailing lists, here: http://rars.sourceforge.net/what.html.

My current robot is a racer called "BigRed". BigRed came in 7th for the overall 2002 RARS F1 season... not too shabby!

I also invite you to visit the web page of Remi Coulom, the programmer who's trounced me and all other competitors for the last several seasons. Of course, his robot is part of the work he's doing for his PhD thesis at the Leibniz Laboratory of the Institute for Data Processing and Mathematical Applications at Grenoble, France, so I'm willing to grudgingly admit his current advantage. Feel free to look at his PhD thesis, here: http://remi.coulom.free.fr .
