Indy Autonomous Challenge, on the unmanned track from 16 to 18 June
Technology and innovation took center stage on the track thanks to free practice, qualifying and the timed race of the Indy Autonomous Challenge, 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.
The third edition of MIMO was an opportunity to see Polimove of the Milan Polytechnic get on the podium and won the timed challenge at the Autodromo against Technische Universität München TUM (2nd place) and the University of Modena and Reggio Emilia ( 3rd place).
