GECCO-2009 – Results of the Second Leg of the Championship

admin | Championship 2009,GECCO-2009 | Tuesday, July 14th, 2009

The second leg of the 2009 Simulated Car Racing Championship just ended. We received around ten submissions. Five new submissions plus the submissions from CEC-2009. Three participants of the CEC-2009 simulated car racing competition updated their drivers.

The three tracks used for the GECCO-2009 leg are: Dirt3, E-road and Alpine.

The results of the first qualifying stage are summarized in the following table:

COBOSTAR is still the fastest controller around but Onieva and Pelta are getting closer and closer. MrRacer was unfortunately disqualified since the controller crashed in one of the tracks. At the end of the first stage eight controllers have been selected (the ones showed in green in the table) and three were eliminated (the red ones in the table above).

In the second stage, for each track, we run eight races with different starting grids and scored the controllers based on their arrival position.

The results are summarized in the following table:

Onieva and Pelta performed really well and actually won this leg of the championship. Congratulations! Their new controller performed really much better than the previous one.

This results reopens the championship since the championship scoreboard has the two teams separated by just few points as shown in this table:

Please, remind that the controller by Luigi, the champion of the CIG2008 competition, appears in the scoreboard but it cannot be awarded with any prize since it belongs to one of the organizing institutions).

I wish to thank all the participants. The next leg will be held during CIG-2009 in Milan and it will be held live so that people will be able to watch an actual race while it is happening.

More news will be posted later.

CEC-2009 Simulated Car Racing Submissions

Daniele | CEC-2009,Championship 2009 | Monday, April 27th, 2009

Gentlemen start your engines!

I would like to remind you that the deadline (8th May) of the CEC-2009 Simulated Car Racing Competition is fast approaching!

Please remember that the CEC-2009 Simulated Car Racing Competition is part of the 2009 Simulated Car Racing Championship, an event joining three competitions held at CEC-2009, GECCO-2009, and CIG-2009.
Therefore we encourage competitors to submit also ongoing works and to improve them for next legs of the championship that will be the GECCO-2009 and the CIG-2009 competitions.
To submit your entry, send an email to championship2009@ieee-cig.org with the following things:

  • the complete package of your controller, i.e., everything is necessary to compile and to run it (please include also sources)
  • a brief README with instructions on how to run your controller
  • a brief description on what you did to develop/evolve/learn your solution [if you plan to attend the conference, you can instead provide some Power Point slides and you might be asked to present your work at the conference]

For Java/C++ controllers, we will appreciate if you manage to submit a package built on the Java/C++ clients provided (see http://cig.ws.dei.polimi.it/?page_id=80).
However, any kind of package will be accepted as far as (i) the instructions to compile and to run it are complete and clear and (ii) it provides the same functionalities of the Java/C++ clients provided for the competition.

If you are going to submit a controller, please send an email to championship2009@ieee-cig.org as soon as possible (we need to estimate in advance the number of competitors for organization purposes).
