SVHS Students Compete at Rose Hulman in the Autonomus Vehicle Competition
Three teams of South Vermilion High School students competed in the Rose-Hulman Autonomous Vehicle competition against more than forty-five teams from around the area and from as far away as Chicago, Tennessee and Texas.  Each team was provided a computer and a small car that looked like a remote control vehicle.  The cars were fitted with a camera and were programmed to stay on a white track by turning when the camera read the black line on the edge of the track.  Each team competed in three contests attempting to navigate the different tracks in the fastest time.  "The students had to continuously make modifications to the car and the computer program they had to write to compensate for the different type of track and the lighting conditions", said Coach Kim Terry.  "Due to some mechanical issues we did not get all three cars running until the week of the competition so I was proud of the students for getting all the cars to completely navigate each track."  The three SVHS cars completed 9 races, and placed in the top in the top twenty in 6 of the races.
