Indy Autonomous Challenge

Indy Autonomous Challenge, on the unmanned track from 27 to 29 June 2025

The Indy Autonomous Challengewill return in 2025, after its debut in the last edition of MIMO, a challenge that saw the Dallara AV-23 compete guided by a control software which, using sensors, supercomputer and implementation hardware, allows the car to drive autonomously. The software is programmed by students and researchers from the most important universities and research centers in the world: Politecnico di Milano, University of Modena and Reggio Emilia, Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology (KAIST), Technische Universität München (TUM) and the USA MIT-PITT-RW team, that is Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) in collaboration with the University of Pittsburgh, Rochester Institute of Technology (RIT), and University of Waterloo.

The Indy Autonomous Challenge has brought a special exhibition to MIMO that further tests the teams and their single-seaters, engaged up to now in autonomous driving competitions on the oval of the track in the United States, where they have also reached 280 km/h h.

In 2025, university teams will compete with the AV-24, the fastest self-driving racing cars in the world built on a Dallara chassis and without a driver, in spectacular head-to-head events on the Formula 1 track of the Autodromo Nazionale Monza.
