Autonomous Driving (AD) is the next frontier of artificial intelligence and machine learning. Intending to further research in AD, we invite you to participate in a competition organised by a World-leading team in autonomous decision making.
Your goal is to design an autonomous agent that is capable of driving safely and efficiently across a variety of simulated maps containing numerous tasks, such as merging, intersections, high-ways, and many others. We offer such scenarios through a simulator that emulates real-world traffic at a variety of granularity levels.
Winners will be announced in a ceremony, where cash prize will be provided with the opportunity to travel to Huawei headquarters in China. You will also get the chance to teach us all about your innovations in a spot-light talk during the event.
Let’s get these cars moving!
Huawei UK Challenge is a programming competition organised by Huawei Technologies Research and Development (UK) Ltd. You pick your team to work together, and we pick a Challenge in the field of Artificial Intelligence for you to solve.
Are you up for the challenge?
Cash prizes and a one-week trip to Huawei China are for our winners!
The Terms & Conditions for Huawei UK Challenge gather all rules that apply to the organisers and participants of the competition. You can find a summary of the most important ones below:
To be eligible to enter the competition, all Participants must
The competition registration opens on 15th October 2019. The Competition itself com-mences on November 1st 2019 and ends at midnight on 15th December 2019 (the 'Dead-line'). Any competition submission after the Deadline will be automatically disqualified.
The following describes how entries to the competition can be made:
The organisers will provide a simulation engine binary for participants to train on. Partici-pants are to use their own method(s) to ensure that their car can successfully accomplish the task.
Participants can use any programming language/framework they wish. However, any cheating by using commercial tools and these results is not permitted and any such en-tries will be disqualified. Top performing teams on the leader-board will be required to pro-vide their code to the Organiser, who will run the code to verify that it reproduces the same results as submitted by the Participants to the competition and to otherwise verify that the submission is valid.
Participants are permitted to submit a maximum 20 entries a day only to the competition. To be clear if a team enters, this maximum of 20 entries applies to the team as a whole.
We will award cash prizes to the three teams with top performance and the top three teams will have the opportunity to visit the Huawei Headquarters in China. Every partici-pant will also get a certificate of qualification to the competition during the Award Cere-mony.
Huawei UK Challenge runs every year from 2017 with challenge topics vary from different fields of Artificial Intelligence.
