Italian success at the Indy Autonomous Challenge , a very special competition that is egrave; was one of the most important events; important of CES 2022. We are talking about a car race with a very high rate of technology in which it was not the classic cars that took to the track. In fact, the protagonists were Dallara single-seaters suitably modified through the integration of a hardware and software platform for autonomous driving .

A win & egrave; it was therefore the e-Novia PoliMove team , the result of a partnership between the Politecnico di Milano and the Universit & agrave; of Alabama . A really important victory considering the many difficulties; of the competition from a technical point of view. The self-driving single-seaters did not race alone, challenging each other only to the sound of timed fast laps.


Indeed, the teams had to face the difficulties; of classic races when the other single-seaters are also on the track. At the Las Vegas Motor Speedway, the cars raced in pairs led by artificial intelligence . And that the e-Novia PoliMove team could win the final victory was already; it was clear during official qualifying when their car had managed to exceed the speed; of 280 km/h .

The team & egrave; managed to beat the competition (5 teams coming from 5 different countries representing 7 universities) and in the final he got the better of the German team TUM Autonomous Motorsport of the Universit & agrave; of Monaco. The most curious can see the video of the race below.

To the winners & egrave; also went a prize of $ 150,000 . The runner-up is & egrave; awarded $ 50,000. For Americans accustomed to quite other types of challenges on the ovals it is & egrave; treated of a new and really curious show. Race result aside, as seen within this very particular competition is very important in terms of the development of technologies related to autonomous driving. Vincenzo Russi , co-founder and CEO of e-Novia, commented on this result:

We are proud of this extraordinary result in an international competition that saw each other leading universities in the world. This is; the demonstration of the level of preparation and innovation that Italy can boast in this area.
