Audi's competition will target unraveling the potential of connected cars

It has been known that self-driving cars from BMW, Google etc have sought to change the world, but one wonder how? Audi is set to embark on this by its Urban Future Award which comprises of a four-city, multidisciplinary challenge. Each team is required to participate in a different competition however all revolve around the ways through which connected cars, such as Audi’s Piloted Driving model, can make city transportation more efficient.

For instance, a crew from Boston may perceive whether vehicles can occupy less by way of self-parking features, whereas those in Seoul may help out by devising means of making connected commuters mingle in over the in-dash displays. The team from Berlin is going to link the private and public transit in order to make commuting more efficient. Lastly, Mexico City’s team is going to create ways to crowd-source traffic date in order to decrease the city’s infamous traffic.

Audi will regularly update its blog regarding these projects with the best plan winning a $140,000 prize.
