The Nadav Shoham Robotraffic Competition was created to give students a hands-on experience in providing high-tech solutions to challenges.

The main challenge of this competition is to build an autonomous robotic car model that can move according to the traffic rules, obey traffic lights and signs, signals, and keep a safe distance from other cars.

Robotraffic competition is open to Indian school schools between grades 10th-12th. The students can participate in teams of 1-8 and can be advised by a teacher, although the construction must be solely done by the students. The categories of the competition include:

# Careful Driving
# Racing
