The Mobile Autonomous Systems LABoratory competition is an autonomous robotics competition, held during the MIT Independent Activities Period (IAP).

Competitors work in teams to design an autonomous robot from top to bottom. This involves mechanical design and construction, electrical wiring, and lots of coding.

The course begins with a week of instruction intended to serve the competitors as they start to design and prototype their systems. The bulk of the course consists of spending time in the lab with robots, and ends with a final competition with cash prizes.

This course is a great choice for all of those who would like to get hands-on experience in working on a team project with many different components. Enrollment limited to 10 teams.
