The CARLA team just launched an autonomous driving challenge in connection with NeurIPS 2021 in December.
“The main goal of the challenge remains the assessment of the driving proficiency of autonomous agents in realistic traffic situation.”
CARLA is a widely-used open-source simulation engine, and the goal is to use machine learning to drive a car through different routes in the simulator.
This is the third iteration of the challenge. More than 45 teams competed in the most recent challenge. You can see the winning talk here:
