FINAL TESTS
TECHNOLOGY CONTEST
In December 2019, Russian developers are coming to the Moscow region to test their unmanned vehicles in real winter conditions. This will happen during the final event of the technology contest Up Great «Winter City».
Winter City Contest: qualification testing
PRIZE PURSE
175
million

FINALISTS

In March 2019, unmanned vehicles of 5 teams passed the qualification round of the technology contest Up Great “Winter City” after they had successfully completed a series of tasks. Each team performed the tasks in order to test the vehicles’ abilities to react adequately to road situations in extreme weather conditions, with poor markings, low visibility of road signs, ice and snow drifts.

THE WINNER SHOULD

Unmanned vehicle should drive 50 km on the winter roads in less than 3 hours

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.

THE FOLLOWING STEPS MUST BE CARRIED OUT TO OVERCOME THE BARRIER

It is required to pass all the following tests
Tough driving conditions
Tough driving conditions
Driving in poor visibility and under severe weather conditions and confident responding to static and dynamic obstacles
High-quality prediction
High-quality prediction
Assessment of the surroundings while considering the movements of other road users and taking the necessary actions based on these data
Confident positioning
Confident positioning
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
Sustainable operation of the system at different times of the day
Sustainable operation of the system at different times of the day
A three-hour route covers different times of the day
Obstacles on route
Obstacles on route
The UV route may face obstacles (static, dynamic) which should be bypassed by the UV without any traffic violations

Winter city contest

Up Great technology contest «Winter City» started in July 2018. The contest goal is to develop safe technologies for the autonomous vehicles (self-driving cars) that can operate in urban areas during the winter season.

Participants develop high quality and reliable technologies for self-driving cars that can move in autonomous mode in the winter season and at different times of the day at the level of an average driver.
