TII Euroracing empowered by Hipert, ranks third at the Indy Autonomous Challenge of Texas
The third edition of the Indy Autonomous Challenge has ended – TII Euroracing empowered by Hipert achieved third place by beating MITT-PITT-RW in the quarter-final and lost the semifinal against PoliMove after two rounds of the match.
During the weeks of testing, the team achieved great results with a lap time of 34 seconds and a maximum speed of 257 km/h within less than a half meter of tracking error and testing multi-vehicle scenarios with other cars detecting them up to 200 meters.
Two days before the race during a practice day, however, the TII Euroracing car suffered a serious accident while it was running almost at the limit in turns 1 – 2.
Given the limited time available, the team had a difficult to adapt the autopilot to its best. The rainy conditions contributed to the worsening of the situation.
Despite these problems, TII Euroracing and Hipert are ready to compete in the Las Vegas race which will be held on January 7th at CES – the world’s largest electronics event.
We take this opportunity to congratulate the winners of this edition of the Politecnico di Milano team.
