The Indy Autonomous Challenge Powered By Cisco (IAC), organized by Energy Systems Network and the Indianapolis Motor Speedway, is a $1.5 million prize competition among universities to program Dallara AV-21 racecars and compete in the world’s first autonomous racecar event at the famed Indianapolis Motor Speedway. The primary goal of the IAC is to advance technology that can speed the commercialization of fully autonomous vehicles and deployments of advanced driver-assistance systems (ADAS). These enhancements will lead to increased safety and performance in all modes of racing and commercial transportation. In addition, the competition is a platform for students to excel in Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM). There are 9 teams comprised of 21 universities from 9 countries competing in the Indy Autonomous Challenge.
