This competition is a technical challenge in which an autonomous mobile robot must travel a path along a closed track, which has striking similarities with driving a vehicle on a conventional road.
The track used tries to play to some extent a real scenario, although the competition takes place in a structured environment.
The figure-8 shaped track simulates a two-lane road to which were added a zebra-crossing with a pair of panel lights (one in each direction), a tunnel, a working zone, obstacles and a parking area with two places where one is free. The position of the obstacle on the track, the exact location of the parking area and the free parking place are unknown to the robot at the start of a run.
