The AI driving olympics (AI-“DO”) is a worldwide AI/robotics competition for miniature self-driving cars.
AI-DO I will take place at NIPS 2018.
AI-DO II will take place at ICRA 2019.
The competition will involve using the Duckietown platform to perform a sequence of progressively more difficult challenges.
In the lead up to the event, we will be releasing logs, simulators, and access to a “Robotarium”, a real Duckietown environment that can be used to evaluate entries.
The main purpose of the competition is to probe the frontier of the state of the art in machine learning in the interactive and embodied setting.
Recent progress in Deep Learning, Machine Learning, and Reinforcement Learning has produced incredible results. Many of these works cite real robots as an application space. This competition is designed to evaluate the real ability for these learning based systems to control physical robots.
