12th F1TENTH Autonomous Grand Prix

F1TENTH Autonomous Racing is a semi-regular competition organized by an international community of researchers, engineers, and autonomous systems enthusiasts. The teams participating in 12th F1TENTH Grand Prix at CPS-IoT 2023 will build a 1:10 scaled autonomous race car according to a given specification and write software for it to fulfill the objectives for the competition: Don’t crash and minimize laptime.

At CPS-IoT 2023 will host an In-person competition with physical cars. Each team will bring their own F1TENTH car and write the software for their car. The teams have access to a detailed build manual and can use open-source software that helps them to get started with the car. The organizers provide the race setup (rules, submissions, guidelines), the track, and related infrastructure and organize the race itself.

A new twist for the CPS-IoT 2023 competition is that the track will feature branching paths with different traction properties - teams will have to empower their autonomous cars with the ability to choose between high-traction low-risk but longer paths vs. low-traction high-risk but shorter paths.

For the competitions, teams first take part in a qualification in order to determine seeding. Qualifying evaluation consists of two tasks. The same vehicle needs to be able to compete in a time trial on a track without any obstacles and finish the laps without collision on the same track with obstacles that are unknown prior to run time and can move during run time. a multi-car tournament seeded by the time trial leaderboard from Qualifying. The final tournament will consist of a sequence of races with multiple cars, where the best placing cars advance to subsequent rounds. The ordering of cars to races will be decided based on the qualifying lap times.
