Self-driving Racing Challenge, car platform provided. Compete ●Connect● Grow

DIY Robocars KuaiKai Self-driving Racing Challenge
Let’s grow, connect and test self-driving technology in a more interesting way.

In Short
DIY Robocars KuaiKai provides car platforms equipped with computing platform, sensors, and by-wire control support for self-driving engineers, and also closed urban roads for racing. Theoretically, you can just save your algorithms to the flash disk and then you are good to go for the racing (kidding, but it’s almost that simple). If you are still a hobbyist engineer without too much experience on the full-sized self-driving vehicle, you can choose to participate KuaiKai small-sized car onsite racing on the indoor racetrack.

About DIY Robocars KuaiKai

  • A Racing with Prize. DIY Robocars KuaiKai is a racing event dedicated to self-driving. Participants come onsite to compete, race, test and optimize their self-driving software and algorithms.
  • An Event to Network and Connect. It’s also an international event for global self-driivng startups, students, engineers, developers and enthusiasts to gather together for networking, communication and mutual growth.
  • Mark the Moments. DIY Robocars KuaiKai is a special way to mark the progress and milestones in self-driving development through the racing.

Racing Categories

  • Full-sized Car Onsite Racing: Full-sized car platform and hardware are provided onsite by the Organizer. The car platform is already equipped with self-driving engineering support. You come with your self-driving software and algorithms onsite to compete on closed urban roads for self-driving skills such as obstacle avoidance and S-bend etc. (The specifications for car platform will be announced on the website so that you can have a check to see the necessity of bringing your own hardware such as sensors and processors etc. )

  • Small-sized Car Onsite Racing: You can choose to bring your own small-sized car onsite to race (as long as it is self-driving small-sized cars powered by Raspberry Pi, such as Donkey car or use the standard small-sized car platform provided by the Organizer onsite. The racing is for Wheel to Wheel Tournament.

  • Remote Racing: Coming Soon (not released yet)

Prize Pool

  • Full-sized Car Onsite Racing: $40,000 USD
  • Small-sized Car Onsite Racing: $15,000 USD
  • Human Driver vs. AI Driver Ultimate Challenge (Full-sized Car): $100,000 USD
