$100,000 winning prize
5 top teams will fly to Silicon Valley for the awards ceremony
5 teams will run their code on Udacity's Self-Driving Car
We are launching a first-of-its kind competition with Didi Chuxing. The focus will be on a core feature of self-driving cars—the Automated Safety and Awareness Processing Stack (ASAPS), which identifies stationary and moving objects from a moving car, using data that includes Velodyne point cloud, radar objects, and camera image frames.
Your challenge? Create a redundant, safe, and reliable system for detecting hazards, that allows for pedestrian, vehicle, and general obstacle detection useful to both human drivers and self-driving car systems.
Anyone from anywhere around the world is invited to participate. The challenge has two rounds, the first of which begins on March 22, 2017. The winning team will receive $100,000 in cash, and have the opportunity to see their code in action on Udacity’s Self-Driving car.
Winners will be subject to the terms and Official Rules .
Participants will need to have an understanding of the following frameworks and skills
This challenge is all about transformative technologies and forward-thinking skills—exactly what these Nanodegree programs teach. You may already be enrolled in one or more, in which case you’re not only an ideal challenge competitor, you’re part of a future-minded vanguard that’s going to change the world! If you haven’t enrolled yet, do so today. This challenge wants you, and the future needs you.

There is no limit to team size, but only participants registered pursuant to the terms detailed in our Contest Rules will be considered official team members. In addition, only a maximum of two members will be flown to Silicon Valley, should your team be a top five team.
All code will be open sourced and made available on Udacity sites as part of the Udacity Open Source Self-Driving Car Project. See Contest Rules for full details.
Teams must submit their code to progress from Round 1 to Round 2, and code for all finalists will be reviewed.
Round 1 will start on March 22, 2017 and Round 2 will start on May 1, 2017.
The top five teams that come to the final award ceremony will have a chance to run their contest submitted code on the Udacity Self-Driving Car.
