Asia’s Biggest Solar-Electric Car Design Competition

(A chain event of International Solar Car Federation)

ESVC Autonomous challenges university/institutions teams to build and develop the driving systems to run a fully autonomous vehicle. Teams compete in a trio of static events similar to the main ESVC competition, Design and Business Plan Presentation, Cost & Manufacturing and Static event for Real-World Autonomous event where teams must demonstrate their understanding and practical solutions for the integration of autonomous vehicles as a future transport solution. In addition, During Dynamic round, teams must complete a series of autonomous missions, again mirroring the main ESVC competition, with Acceleration, Cross Pad, Endurance events. These demonstrate teams’ technical knowledge and understanding as well as the effectiveness of their autonomous driving systems.
We understand the challenges of developing the new age technology mobility solution so, we will be nurture and mentoring the teams by Automotive experts from all over the world.

Pre Virtual Round

Mentorship Program – Teams are required to attend workshop in which the technical committee members of the event demonstrate the importance of rules, about the vehicle design and dynamics and overall vehicle concept followed by the rulebook test. The workshop also gives overview on all the event rounds evaluations, reports, Technical Inspections, enhancement of track time and college level TI, etc.

Rulebook Test – The purpose of the rulebook test is to give overall understanding of all the rules and apply best engineering skills to design the vehicle as per the rules.

Static and Dynamic Round

Technical Inspection & Driver Safety – Each vehicle would be inspected for compliance according to rules and regulation mentioned in ESVC 2024 rulebook. Vehicle must be presented for technical inspection in finished condition i.e. ready-to-run condition.

Weight Test – The weight of the vehicle is checked to ensure it is designed and manufactured as per the weight criteria given in the rulebook.

Rain Test – Rain test is conducted to ensure the electrical safety of the vehicle. During the rain test, the tractive system kept active and the drive wheels off the ground or removed from the vehicle and a shower of water is sprinkled to test the electrical safety of the car.

Brake Test – The brake test is one of the mandatory Scrutinizing/Inspection requirements which must be passed before the car will be allowed on track.

Note: The dynamic rounds for the autonomous category are not yet defined and suggested rounds are as follows,

  • Autonomous Emergency Braking (AEB)
  • Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC)
  • Vehicle to stationery object
  • Vehicle to pedestrian
  • Lane Departure Warning (LDW)
  • Lane Keep Assist (LKA)
  • Object Detection and Avoidance
  • Off Road Performance
