The challenge is basically a competitive version of our Term 3 Path Planning Project. The goal is to navigate a simulated vehicle through highway traffic as quickly as possible, without violating speed, acceleration, and jerk constraints. And without colliding with any other traffic, of course 🙂
The top 25 entrants will get an interview with Bosch’s autonomous vehicle group.
The competition is open to US-based students currently enrolled in the Udacity Self-Driving Car Engineer Nanodegree Program.
If you’re enrolled in the program, especially if you’re already in Term 3 and working on the Path Planning project, you should take a look at participating!
And if you’re not enrolled yet, you should apply! We anticipate rolling out more of these in the future 🙂
