The Challenge

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.

Accelerate your future

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!
