Indy Autonomous Challenge Returning to CES
Following its debut at CES 2022 the Indy Autonomous Challenge (IAC) will return to CES 2023, the Consumer Technology Association (CTA) announced.
The Autonomous Challenge at CES will take place at Las Vegas Motor Speedway on Jan 7, 2023. The event will be limited to CES attendees and transportation will be available from the Las Vegas Convention Center (LVCC) to the Las Vegas Motor Speedway.
“The Autonomous Challenge CES in January brought a new level of excitement to CES with the world’s first head-to-head autonomous racecar competition, pushing autonomous driving technology to its limits,” said Jean Foster, senior vice president marketing and communications, CTA. “We are thrilled to welcome the Indy Autonomous Challenge back to CES 2023, and can’t wait to see how the research being done on autonomous vehicles through this competition will advance the industry.”
“We bring together the best university minds in AI, robotics, and automation from around the world and match them with cutting edge technology from industry leading companies to make the impossible possible,” said Paul Mitchell, president, Indy Autonomous Challenge. “We come to CES because this competition is not only catapulting autonomous technologies forward, but it’s also educating and inspiring innovators and entrepreneurs for generations to come.”
The Indy Autonomous Challenge is a prize competition designed to engage university teams from around the world to program autonomous-modified racecars and compete in a series of history-making competitions, event officials said. Based in Indiana, the IAC is working to establish a hub for performance automation in the state and is harnessing the power of prize competitions to attract the best and the brightest minds from around the globe to further the state-of-the-art technology in safety and performance of automated vehicles. The IAC started with 41 university teams signing up to compete more than two years ago, representing top engineering and technology programs from 14 U.S. states and 11 countries.
Owned and produced by CTA, CES 2023 will take place in Las Vegas on Jan. 5-8, 2023.
