The second edition of the AI-DO was held in May 2019, in Montreal, Canada at the International Conference on Robotics and Automation (ICRA).
The competition comprised of one league, Urban Driving, run by the Duckietown Foundation.
There were 3 challenges in the league.
Lane following (LF) where a single Duckiebot drives within the lane in a closed road loop without intersections nor obstacles.
Lane following with vehicles (LFV) where vehicles were added to the road and the Duckiebot running the competitors algorithm avoids making contact while still lane following.
Lane following with vehicle and intersections (LFVI) where the competing Duckiebot navigates a road map that includes intersection while also avoiding contact with other driving vehicles.
The finals were kicked off by a semifinals round, where we the top 5 submissions from the Lane Following in Simulation leaderboard. The finalists (JBRRussia and MYF) moved forward to the more complicated challenges of Lane Following with Vehicles and Lane Following with Vehicles and Intersections.

In the end JBRRussia came out on top for all three challenges!
If you couldn’t make it to the event and missed the live stream on Facebook, here’s a short video of the first run of the JetBrains Lane Following submission.
Thanks to everyone that competed, dropped in to say hello, and cheered on the finalists by sending the song of the Duckie down the corridors of the Palais des Congrès.
