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.
