CIG 2008 Car Racing Competition

The CIG 2008 Car Racing competition was a software-simulated race between virtual cars, organized by Swiss researcher Julian Togelius, and Daniele Loiacono and Pier Luca Lanzi of the Politecnico di Milano. Details of the race were presented at the IEEE Symposium on Computational Intelligence and Games held in December 2008 in Perth, Australia. The cars were powered by controllers based on a variety of architectures, including neural nets, genetic algorithms and evolution strategies.

The car race was enabled by TORCS, an open source race car simulator written in C++. TORCS provides multiple versions of cars, tracks, and controllers, and the ability to develop custom controllers. TORCS is supported by an active community of users and developers. The competition patch for TORCS was written by Daniele Loiacono.
