The Consumer Technology Association (CTA) has announced that the Indy Autonomous Challenge (IAC) will return to CES in January 2023, with the series’s autonomous racers competing on the Las Vegas Motor Speedway.
Collaborating with partners like AWS, Cisco, Continental, Dallara, dSpace and Luminar, the IAC aims to push the limits for the entire autonomous community, helping to increase the safety and performance of its technology, not only in motorsports, but across all modes of commercial transportation. The primary goal of the competition is to solve real-world problems by advancing technology that will speed the commercialization of fully autonomous vehicles and deployments of advanced driver-assistance systems (ADAS).
“We bring together the best university minds in AI, robotics and automation from around the world and match them with cutting-edge technology from industry-leading companies to make the impossible possible,” said Paul Mitchell, president, Indy Autonomous Challenge. “We come to CES because this competition is not only catapulting autonomous technologies forward, but it’s also educating and inspiring innovators and entrepreneurs for generations to come.”
The Indy Autonomous Challenge is a prize competition designed to engage university teams from around the world to program autonomous-modified race cars and compete in a series of on track competitions. Based in Indiana, the IAC is working to establish a hub for performance automation in the state and is harnessing the power of prize competitions to attract the best and the brightest minds from around the globe to further the state-of-the-art technology in safety and performance of automated vehicles.
