The Mexican Robotics Tournament will host the AutoModelCar category, it has its antecedent in the project "Visions of Urban Mobility" of the dual year Mexico-Germany 2016-2017, promoted by Dr. Raúl Rojas to promote the training of human resources and research in the area of autonomous vehicles.
For the only time, in the 2018 edition participation will be restricted to institutions that received an AutoModelCar robot in any of its versions (1, 2 or 3). AutoModelCar is a 1:10 scale car delivered as a loan to several Mexican universities that has sensors such as cameras and LiDAR. The intention is that in future editions the participation will open to teams that develop their own car at scale.
In this competition, the autonomous driving capabilities of the car are tested so that it can make its decisions based on its sensors (mainly cameras, LiDAR). The tests are carried out on a surface similar to a two-lane highway and in a parking area. The tests are:
