Due to the challenges created by the rules for the FSG 2021 season, both ZF and Formula Student teams are facing similar challenges. In order to learn from your approaches to challenges in developing a driverless race car and to assist you with technical issues for the 2021 season, ZF is creating the ZF Formula Student Driverless Challenge.
As it is challenging to develop a car that autonomously drives low lap times at the acceleration and skid-pad events, we invite you to present your technical concept and implementation plan for an autonomous system in your Formula Student vehicle for the 2021 season.
Your presentation should focus on:
At ZF Race Camp 2021 the best of these five teams will be announced as winner of the Formula Student Driverless Challenge.
Your team can participate in the challenge by submitting your technical concept and implementation plan (max. 3 pages in total: thereof max. 2 pages written text). The document should be in PDF format and should not exceed 10MB. Please send your team’s proposal to the e-mail address shown below. We will announce the nominated teams by April 10th, 2020.
All nominated teams will present their technical concept and implementation plan at ZF Race Camp 2020 in Friedrichshafen, Germany. Each team has a 10 minute time slot for presenting, followed by 5 minutes of questions. Teams are advised to prepare suitable documentation and presentation media.
Please send your team’s proposal latest by March 14th, 2020, 23:59 CEST to:
