In November 2021 four teams from Spanish universities met at the Tomorrow Mobility Congress of the Smart City Expo in Barcelona. The CUPRA Formentor model cars navigated the streets of a Barcelona-based circuit for 3 days. As side events we had numerous speakers from leading companies in AV and 5G, we showed the operation of a car driving software aimed at people with reduced mobility and finally we had the competition live on the InfoK channel.
The second edition of the Autonomous Driving Challenge was held in 2018 at the event #Imperdible_03 in Madrid. This expo is organized and sponsored every year by COTEC, a private foundation whose mission is to promote innovation in Spain. The competition lasted two days and included many lectures and workshops about robotics and programming.
The Autonomous Driving Challenge was first held in 2017, as the first public challenge on autonomous driving in Spain. Over 50 students from 7 spanish universities around the country participated during the Smart City Expo in Barcelona, which was attended by over 18 thousand people.
