What is the Code #LikeABosch online challenge about?
This is a unique online competition where we welcome engineers,
developers or other tech talents to be able to solve an exciting 3-level automotive challenge.
Is participation free of
Yes, the competition is free to enter.
Can I participate alone?
You can register alone or in a team, it’s totally up to you.
The maximum members for teams is limited to 5.
What does the evaluation method look like?
Your goal is to write the navigation system of a virtual self driving car.
Each round you'll be given a different map or track, where your navigation system needs to find the fastest route from
start to finish. Each road can be traversed by certain speeds and on later tracks, different obstacles can hinder your
progress eg. traffic lights and traffic jams. Your goal is to find the fastest route through the track.
The environment, track and the car are modeled by a runtime you can download from the email you receive at the
beginning of each round. You can upload your solutions using that runtime as well. The solutions are also
verified by our system automatically. You can test your navigation system locally as many time as you like, but
you can only upload it 10 times each round. Only your most efficient solution will be saved.

Where is the Code #LikeABosch organized?
The event is held 100% online. You receive all information by email and you don’t
need anything else just your computer. In case of question you can contact
us here: firstname.lastname@example.org
How can I submit my project?
You can both test and submit your program using the runtime environment.
To see that your project fulfills the requirements run the following command:
./automotive <taskname> <entry_file>
In order to submit your program simply add the
[-u, --upload-as-user] flag and provide your API key to the
./automotive <taskname> <entry_file> -u=apikey
Please note that you can test your program as many times as you would like to. However, the number of submissions
is limited to each task, so make sure to double-check before you submit your project. For more information,
run the following command:
What are the evaluation criteria?
Solutions are ranked by their efficiency first (your track time or how fast you drove your car from start to finish),
and speed of delivery second (when you submitted it). So the most efficient solution submitted first wins.
eg. a ranking table could look like this:
# | Name of player | Track time | Time of submission
