AutoDrive Challenge COVID-19 Update

3/19/2020 1:02:14 PM   AutoDrive Challenge(TM) Year 3 Competition

With the rapidly evolving coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, we have made the difficult decision to postpone the current June onsite Year 3 2020 AutoDrive Challengeā„¢ Competition. We are working with the Transportation Research Center and other stakeholders on a new date.

We understand the disappointment this news may bring to our entire community, including teams, volunteers and sponsors. We will reach out soon to faculty and other stakeholders to gather input to help us make the fall event valuable and successful for participants.

It is our hope that teams will continue to work virtually on competition documents. To ensure teams have enough time to complete, we will push the report deadlines back to Late Summer 2020 for both the Social Responsibility Report and the Concept Design Report. Please review the updated deadline dates on the www.autodrivechallenge.com website for each submission.

We will continue to monitor the Rules, Question and Answer system to assist teams virtually, as well as preparing the Year 4 rules for release.

Thank you for your cooperation and support during these difficult times as we modify our 2020 schedule to offer everyone sustainable options for participation. We will continue to update you on any changes or contingency plans as new information is available. If you have not done so, please download the AutoDrive Challenge app and continue to check the newsfeed to keep up with current information.

Should you have questions please feel free to reach out to us.
