New competition for autonomous racecars: TUM takes part in the Indy Autonomous Challenge

Once again, the Institute of Automotive Engineering and the Chair of Automatic Control from TUM have joined forces to set up a research team of 13 PhD students in the field of autonomous motorsports. This team has successfully registered for the Indy Autonomous Challenge and will develop the software for an autonomous racing car within the next two years. In total, 37 universities worldwide, which excel in the fields of AI software and autonomous vehicle engineering, have formed 31 teams that officially participate in this first competition of its kind. The highlight of the Indy Autonomous Challenge is a neck-and-neck race of the autonomous vehicles programmed by the teams in October 2021 at the famous Indianpolis Motor Speedway.
