Autonomous Driving Challenge Team

This big dream is becoming a reality thanks to the inspiring CARNET team. 

At CARNET, we are working tirelessly to make urban mobility a more sustainable, inclusive, safer, customer-centred sector. Through collaboration with universities and students, we align the needs of industry and society with academia, while we prepare future professionals for the challenges to come.

In a rapidly changing world, mobility solutions are increasingly complex and varied. To give citizens the best products and services, we strongly believe that fostering these collaborations is what the mobility ecosystem needs to be able to increase innovation.

For the competition, CARNET has the strong, valuable support of the Institut de Robotica i Informàtica Industrial (IRI) in Barcelona, one of the local centres of expertise in robotics. They are alongside us, behind the creation of this challenge, giving us and the participating students full technical support.


CARNET is a knowledge hub for science and technology, focused on urban mobility and based in Barcelona. CARNET combines knowledge from industry, education and public entities to create contemporary urban mobility solutions. CARNET is a benchmark in this area, in close alliance with European counterparts.

CARNET was founded by Volkswagen Group Innovation, SEAT and the Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya in 2015 as a Future Mobility Research Hub. Since then, it has carried out projects related to the future of urban mobility and several university competitions to promote and deepen this knowledge between new generations.
