Eight teams from three universities in Ho Chi Minh City and Da Nang University of Technology competed in the semi-final round in which the team assembled parts of their self-propelled cars, installed proper software and source codes to control these vehicles so that the vehicles successfully moved in accordance with the simulated traffic provided by the organization board.

In the first race, only the car of DUT Stark team from Da Nang University of Technology was able to reach the finish line. All other cars failed the task because of technical problems.

In the second race, adjustments in technical aspects helped all teams perform better, and the race became more thrilling. DUT Stark, however, still kept their leading position and impressively entered the final match. Three more candidates from Ho Chi Minh City University of Technology and Ho Chi Minh City University of Information Technology were also determined to compete in the final round.

It is quite notable that there are female members in 3 out of 4 teams to participate in the final round. This is a fascinating fact since the technology field is commonly the battleground of the male counterpart.

The final round is going to happen at the end of  April, in which eight teams including four from the Northern region and four from the Central and Southern regions will race to win the prize of VND 450 million and best jobs in FPT Corporation.

President of FPT Software Hoang Nam Tien appreciated all the considerable effort and the inquiring mind of all race participants. He also kindly asked these participants to think of  joining FPT Software so as to have better opportunities to perfect their skills.
