About the contest
Ice Vision - an international artificial intelligence competition in computer vision for autonomous vehicles held in June-July, 2019 in Moscow, Russia.
The competition was designed to challenge the problems of accurate mapping of road signs and objects based on LiDAR/camera data in harsh winter conditions. The participants were required to develop software to help self-driving cars map the objects correctly in order to see through winter storm and other winter weather disasters.
It was the first time when the participants face a task of developing an intelligent system for an autonomous vehicle based on data collected during the Russian winter. This unique "winter" dataset included more than 20 thousand images.
How to participate
- Read the tender documentation
- Fill in the questionnaire of the team or individual participant
- Get access to the online platform
- Propose a solution to the task of the qualifying stage
- Get an invitation to the final (full-time) stage
- Take part in the hackathon and become a winner by developing the best drone SOFTWARE in winter conditions
programming languages and libraries.
The Ice Vision second round on July 13-16, 2019, consists of a 2-day hackathon and educational program, and takes part in Moscow, Russia.
Accommodation and hacking will be at the NUST MISIS historic Сommune House, which is a well-known example of constructivist architecture from the Soviet 1930s
Opening and awarding ceremonies will take place at the Skolkovo Institute of Science and Technology campus.
Any person from all over the world aged 14-30 y.o. eager to make a difference in computer vision for autonomous vehicles.
he minimum size of the team is 2 and the maximum is 5 members including the team leader. If you don’t have a team yet — we will help you find one or form a new team through our online platform.
In order to participate all team members should be aged 14-30 y.o., while the team leader should be aged 18-30 y.o.
All meals and snacks throughout the hacking period will be provided by the organizers.If you have dietary allowances, please don’t forget to inform us and bring with you your special meals.
Here in Moscow we cover accommodation, food and local transportation across the venues.The participants pay by themselves transportation to Moscow and back home.
Ice Vision competition is designed as a satellite of a major Up Great technology contest “Winter City” with the aim to attract developers and scientific community to creation of computer vision solutions for autonomous driving in winter conditions.
Up Great is a series of contests initiated in Russia as part of the National Technology Initiative to find breakthrough solutions to global technological challenges.
Co-organizer of Ice Vision is NUST MISIS - one of the leading universities in a number of areas, including material sciences, metallurgy and mining, as well as biomaterials, nano- and IT-technologies. In 2017 the university successfully organized an artificial intelligence and computer vision international hackathon - VisionHack.
