Join DIY Robocars UK

If you want to get your hands on creating your own autonomous vehicle, are interested in programming, model-making, racing or just learning more, then come along to the DIY Robocars UK group.

  1. Events will take monthly on the group’s track at the Welshmill, a community hub in Frome, Somerset, just a stone’s throw from the pretty city of Bath.
  2. Each one-day event will consist of programming and tweaking in the morning, a break for lunch (which is included), and racing of scale model autonomous vehicles in the afternoon.
  3. There is a £3 (cash) charge per person for the day to cover the venue and catering costs.
  4. Read our getting started guide if you’re interested in taking part.

Upcoming events:

  • Saturday 27th April 9.30am – 2pm (launch and working party to create track)
  • Saturday 25th May 9.30am – 2pm
  • Saturday 29th June 9.30am – 2pm


Join our Summer Bash on Saturday 13th July as part of the Frome Festival.  We’ll be running a special event outdoors at the Welshmill BMX Pump Track, a unique sealed-track with no markings, lots of ramps, tiny hills and in park nearby.  We’ll be demonstrating some autonomous vehicle technologies as well.

Help us promote the event by printing the DIY Robocars UK flyer and putting up in your workplace, noticeboard, code club or online!
