About the contest

Development of an unmanned vehicle (UV) capable of moving in an autonomous mode in winter and at different times of the day, in compliance with the traffic regulations of the Russian Federation (hereinafter referred to as "Traffic rules") under conditions of urban infrastructure, possibly with no road markings, under low visibility of the roadway, in the presence of traffic and hindrance to traffic, at an average driver's level.

CONTEST DESCRIPTION

TO DEVELOP A DRIVERLESS CAR
adapted for movement during winter season and at different times of the day, considering the possible absence of road markings and low visibility of roadway, with the achievement of a level of safety of vehicle driving comparable to the level of vehicle driving of the average driver.

TECHNOLOGICAL BARRIER:

Driving of an unmanned vehicle in an autonomous winter mode and at different times of the day, in compliance with the traffic regulations under conditions of urban infrastructure, possibly with no road markings, under low visibility of the roadway, in the presence of traffic and hindrance to traffic, at an average driver's speed and safety level.
MOVEMENT SPEED IS THE INTEGRAL CRITERION UNIFYING THE FOLLOWING:
Driving of vehicles
Driving of vehicles
Recognition of the environment

Positioning of unmanned vehicle (UV) while driving in the urban and suburban setting and assessment of the condition of the surrounding infrastructure

ADDITIONAL CONDITIONS

Compliance with traffic rules
Compliance with traffic rules
Violation of traffic rules will add penalty minutes
Testing is carried out in spring-winter times
Testing is carried out in spring-winter times
The major challenge - high variability of testing conditions. The required conditions (fog, snow, black ice) are created as necessary
