About the Competition

Robotaxi-Full Scale Autonomous Vehicle Competition is organized within the scope of TEKNOFEST Technology competitions.

The goal of the Robotaxi-Full Scale Autonomous Vehicle Competition is to encourage participants to gain competence in the field of autonomous vehicle technologies, original design, algorithm and reporting.

High school, associate degree, undergraduate, graduate students and graduates can participate in the competition individually or as a team. Teams of high school students and teams of university and higher levels will compete in the same category.

The competition consists of two categories. In Unique Vehicle Category, which is the first category, teams participate in the competition by producing all vehicles from A to Z and producing software. In Autonomous-Ready Vehicle Category, teams run their software on autonomous vehicle platforms provided by TEKNOFEST.

In the final of the competition, it will be expected to perform various tasks autonomously in a real racetrack environment that is valid for both categories mentioned above.  The main purpose of the competition is to develop autonomous driving algorithms.

Within the scope of the competition, teams must prepare for 4 different stages: Preliminary Design and Simulation Report (PDR), Preliminary Design and Simulation Presentation, Critical Design Report (CDR) and Vehicle Test Video. In the first stage, teams are expected to accomplish the given task in a simulation environment and prepare a Preliminary Design and Simulation Report (PDR) that includes the simulation results. After this stage, teams will be invited to present their reports. In the second stage, the Critical Design Report will be requested. Teams that qualify for the final will be announced according to the results of the Vehicle Test Videos.

NOTE: Teams participating in the Efficiency Challenge Competition can also compete in this category. However, they have to apply separately from here.

Apart from the information given in the specification, you must be a member of the related mailing group from the link ROBOTAKSI - FULL SCALE AUTONOMOUS VEHICLE COMPETITION for any questions you want to ask about the competition. The questions you will ask and the answers to these questions will be clear to the other members of the mailing group. The templates for the reports that the contestants need to prepare will be announced on the TEKNOFEST website in the future.

Competition Application Deadline is 07 MARCH!
