At Formula Student East there will be only one combined Engineering Design Event for the Driverless teams, the “base” vehicle and the autonomous system will be judged at the same place and the same time. We use the name “Driverless Design Event” for this event, the maximum achievable score is 325 pts, which will be not divided into “base” and autonomous parts.
As our first driverless competition starts next week, we’re excited to announce our brand new partnership with Aptiv from the world of mobility and smart cars. (;
