Please email your application to participate in the Audi Autonomous Driving Cup 2018 with all necessary documents to the following address until May 13, 2018:


Your application should include the following elements:

Team description

A team consists of five students of computer science, electrical engineering, mechanical engineering or similar disciplines. A supervision of the team by scientific employees or professors of the university is desired.

The team description should cover the following information:

  • Team name
  • Team photo
  • Short presentation of the supervising academic chair
  • Presentation of the team
  • Team members with name, nationality, email, photo and short motto
  • Selection of the team speaker

The team description will be published on the website. For this reason, we require your consent to the publication of the entire team description, including photos on the contest website (see below). This consent is mandatory for participation!

Project description or scientific abstract

The aim of the contest is the development of fully automatic driving functions and the necessary software architectures. Particularly in the case of the software architectures, a transfer of current developments in robotics to the contest is desired. The aim is to create an architecture that is as elegant as possible, which not only meets the requirements of the current contest, but is preferably applicable to all scenarios of autonomous driving. In the project description, you discuss your ideas for programming the vehicle and explain the scientific approach of your idea (e.g. learning methods to be used). Ideally, you can already make initial statements about the expandability and transferability of your idea to other problems of autonomous driving.

You can also enter additional information about the embedding of the team into the university, e.g. in the form of accompanying courses or internships.

Note: These documents will be published at the earliest after the respective contest.

Self-description of the team members

We would like to get to know you better. Therefore, we look forward to receiving a text from each team member in which he or she discusses their careers, describes hobbies or presents any extra-professional involvement.

Note: These documents will not be published.

Signed forms for each team member

We require a signed copy of the competition entry rules in the Audi Autonomous Driving Cup 2018 from each individual team member and the declaration of consent of the participant of Audi Autonomous Driving Cup 2018 to film and sound recordings as well as photo shoots. These documents can be found on our documents page.

Teams that lack application documents cannot be taken into consideration for the team selection!
