We are thrilled to announce the F1tenth Autonomous Racing Competition, the event scheduled to take place at the Intelligent Vehicles Symposium (IV) 2024. This competition offers a unique platform for students, innovators, and researchers in the field of autonomous vehicles to showcase their skills, exchange knowledge, and push the boundaries of what’s possible in autonomous racing.

The F1tenth competition challenges participants to design, build, and race 1/10th scale autonomous vehicles. Competitors will navigate complex racetracks, demonstrating their vehicles’ abilities to make real-time decisions, avoid obstacles, and compete head-to-head with other autonomous racers. This event is designed to foster innovation, collaboration, and learning in the rapidly evolving field of autonomous vehicle technology.

In addition, around these events, it is possible to generate other attractions such as technical activities, articles, and educational activities, which allow the ITSS to complete the portfolio that it offers to its members. Finally, these competitions have a significant number of global followers, so accessing its membership base is an important strategic move for the IEEE ITSS and will undoubtedly have long-term benefits. What sets this event apart is that participants have the opportunity to apply for financial support to fund their project, helping cover both the construction of the car and travel expenses (partially) to the race location.
