FIRA Challenge - Autonomous Cars Challenge

The focus of the FIRA Autonomous Cars competition is to encourage researchers to develop self-driving cars.


The RC Car (from now on inside this document will be called car) used for this competition should be electrically powered. Fuel-based cars cannot participate in this competition. Please remember that your car has to abide by the following limits to be able to participate in the competition:

  • Length : 550mm

  • Width : 300mm

  • Electrically powered

Both 4WD and 2WD cars are allowed for the competition and cars will be quarantine minutes before each group run. Cars used for this competition should have 4 wheels and Ackerman steering mechanism. The picture below shows an example of acceptable cars with Ackerman steering mechanism. Please consider that infrared line follower sensors are not allowed. For general specifications relevant to all FIRA events (e.g., playing field, lighting, and responsibility of the referees) please refer to General - FIRA Laws of the Game.



League General Chair:

Welcome to the Federation of International Robot-Sport Association

Robot soccer can be portrayed as a competition of advanced robot technology within a confined space. It offers a challenging arena to the young generation and researchers working with autonomous mobile robotic systems. It is hoped that FIRA’s flagship event, called the FIRA Robot World Cup (or the FIRA Cup in short), which started in 1996, together with many other FIRA events, will help generate interests in robotics in the young minds.

Through these events, FIRA hopes to help them better understand and appreciate, with interests, the scientific concepts and technological developments involved. FIRA believes that some of these interests will fuel scientific and engineering skills that ultimately develop into research outcomes to serve mankind in a variety of ways.

Ever since its establishment, FIRA has had venues for its annual FIRA Cup in Australia, Brazil, China, France and Korea. Making progress over successive years since 1996, FIRA Cup has now attained world recognition as a robot festival.
