The Software Institute is pleased to announce the first edition of Formula USI, which will take place from November 5-7, 2021 at the new USI/SUPSI Campus Est in Lugano.
Formula USI is a team-based competition aimed at building, programming, and racing 1:16 scale self-driving cars implemented through artificial intelligence techniques.
Formula USI has educational and social purposes. Formula USI is a new educational project to allow students to familiarize themselves with concepts related to artificial intelligence by working on a project oriented to the future but also very actual: autonomous driving.
Another goal of the event is to build a network to train future professionals in the field of artificial intelligence and autonomous driving and to establish collaborations between local, national, and international realities.
The event will start on Friday (November, 5) in the late afternoon with a short presentation and a welcome drink. Saturday (November, 6) will be the day dedicated to the development of intelligent self-driving cars and testing. On Sunday (November 7) we will assist to the races and to a roundtable where professional drivers and researchers will discuss various topics related to the world of autonomous driving. The event will end in the late afternoon with the award ceremony.
