By Politecnico di Milano

At the Indy Autonomous Challenge (IAC), organised by Energy Systems Network within the CES 2022 exhibition, the university teams from all over the world competed in a series of challenges with Dallara AV- 21 racecars, aiming at boosting progress in the development and in the marketing of safe, efficient and fully autonomous vehicles.

The exceptional performance of PoliMOVE, a team of Politecnico di Milano in cooperation also with researchers of the University of Alabama, with its racecar reaching a speed of almost 280 Km/h and overtaking the competing vehicle of TUM, marks a historical victory and the reward of long-lasting efforts made with passion and determination. The first position was awarded a 150,000 US$ grant and confirms the excellence of the Italian Engineering. “We could not hope for any better result, we have been working very hard, we believed in this project” Prof. Sergio M. Savaresi said, chair and founder of PoliMOVE.
