Indy Autonomous Challenge Hackathon #2
Watch 21 finalists in the Indy Autonomous Challenge, sponsored by Ansys, compete in two virtual racing challenges at the famed Indianapolis Motor Speedway. Challenge 1 is called “Fastest Lap” and requires the competitors to find the fastest line as they navigate the racecourse with no other competitors or obstructions in the way. Challenge 2 is called “Late Braking” and adds two additional cars to the track. The competitors must try to overtake these cars along a straightaway without crashing. The action is fast and unpredictable as these virtual cars navigate the racecourse using software and sensors instead of a driver in a race to the finish line and a celebratory spot on the podium.
