Introducing the first ever Artificial Intelligence Robotic Racing (AIRR) Circuit, a global autonomous drone racing series, where teams of technologists, engineers and drone enthusiasts will develop artificial intelligence for high-speed racing drones.
AIRR Circuit: HUMAN VS. MACHINE
AIRR races kick off in 2019. The circuit will feature four AI vs. AI drone races during its first season. As the ultimate AIRR championship, DRL will stage a human vs. AI drone finale where the DRL Allianz World Champion will go against the best AI.
CASH PRIZES ARE ON THE LINE.
The winning team of the AIRR Circuit will receive $1 million. The first team to beat a human-piloted drone in head-to-head competition will take home an extra $250,000.
qualify for a chance to race.
DRL has partnered with Lockheed Martin to launch AlphaPilot, an open innovation challenge to develop artificial intelligence for high-speed racing drones. Autonomous drones will race head-to-head through complex, three-dimensional tracks in DRL’s new AI Robotic Racing circuit, starting in 2019.
