Requirements are elements of an Entry that MUST be accounted for in a submission. If an entry does not address these details satisfactorily, the entry will be marked Invalid.
Maximum vehicle dimensions:
Overall Height: 72” (182.88 cm)
Overall Length: 141” (358.14 cm)
Overall Width: 64” (162.56 cm)
Max Curb Weight: 2000 lbs (907.2 kg)
Gross Vehicle Weight: 3500 - 4000 lbs (1587.6 - 1814.4 kg)
Minimum Ground Clearance: 10” (25.4)
Proposed solution should enable at least 2 of the 4 use cases described in the challenge brief.
Guidelines are conceptual directions that should guide your proposed solutions. Judging will specifically be considering these elements in addition to requirements and the overarching objective statement. While these may include items that do not need to be specifically met, they express attributes that will serve to highlight the truly exceptional entries.
If you propose a change to existing vehicle infrastructure, keep in mind that cost and time are important factors. Your solutions can be inspirational, but should be realistic and compatible with existing roadway infrastructure.
Below are links to further places to draw inspiration and jump into current conversations:
Entries will be evaluated based on compliance with Requirements as well as upon a combination of the following:
Completeness of the Entry;
Adherence to Entry Guidelines;
Feasibility of your proposed solution;
Estimated implementation and production costs; and
Proposed solutions ease of use and simplicity.
Entries should be in PDF report format and contain the following information:
A summary describing your proposed solution;
A detailed description of your proposed solution, including any supporting drawings and dimensions for at least two of the four proposed Use Cases;
A description of your inspiration.
A brief description of you (or your Team’s) experience, background and capabilities, including relevant past projects and experiences. If your Entry is submitted on behalf of a Team, each Team member should be named individually in the description.
Annotated imagery of concept (JPEG or PNG of at least 1920x1080)
Visualization of Use Cases for at least 2 different use cases
Additional Deliverable Considerations
The list below are suggestions for your Entry. While these are not requirements, and some submissions may not need all these elements, a more complete Entry will be judged more favorably. This will enable for faster scale modeling and more as we move into a future Technical Challenge and proof-of-concepting work:
Full CAD drawings with assemblies, sub-assemblies and files for any mechanical designs.
Complete material specifications.
