Indy Autonomous Challenge


In late 2019 the AI Racing Tech team put together an application to compete in the Indy Autonomous Challenge (IAC). The IAC is a $1.5 million high-speed, head-to-head autonomous vehicle (AV) race that is attracting universities from around the world to the Indianapolis Motor Speedway and inspiring the next generation of automotive and robotics innovators in October 2021. The AI Racing Tech team qualified for the competition based on its notable efforts and is working on meeting the Round 2 qualifications using its continuing work in the autonomous evKart being built for the evGrandPrix. The AI racing Tech team finished 6th in the recent IAC hack-a-thon in the "fast lap" competition and 10th overall out of 40 teams. As this competition is a significantly greater challenge the AI Racing Tech team is collaborating with the UH-Manoa robotics lab team to form the UH Autonomous Vehicle Team Ohana.
