Come and help us shaping the future of road transport!

JRC AUTOTRAC 2020 is the first autonomous vehicle traffic competition.

Differently from other competitions involving small-scale automated vehicles (AVs), AUTOTRAC is about vehicles’ cooperation behavior rather than their individual capacity to complete a certain path.

If you have a team of people able to build a fleet of cooperative, automated, small-scale vehicles (CAVs), submit an application to participate.

Registration

Please follow the instructions (PDF) and register online.

Deadline: 30 September 2019 (23:59 CET).

By confirming their participation, the teams will agree with the terms and conditions of the competitions and send a photo of the team and/or of the available robots to be published on promotional material (e.g. web page).

Objectives

The main pillars of the AUTOTRAC initiative are promotion of

  • cooperation between AVs,
  • more efficient energy consumption and the
  • reasonable utilisation of the transport network.

AUTOTRAC 2020 want to find out if

  • CAVs capable to do a better utilisation of the network.
  • Can deliver less congestion, safer and greener mobility.

Participants and organisation

AUTOTRAC is open to teams of students, universities, research centers, makers’ communities, and private companies.

Each team participates with a fleet of four small-scale AVs that should demonstrate

  1. efficiency in automated driving and
  2. cooperation for better network utilization.

The application shall contain a

  • short motivation to participate to AUTOTRAC,
  • list of past competitions attended and the results achieved,
  • link to a web page where the team can show via videos and other material its technical capacity.

On the basis of the applications received, a group of JRC experts will select the best 12 teams that will be invited to take part to the competition.
