The Roads and Transport Authority announced the opening of registration for the 4th Dubai World Challenge for Self-Driving Transport 2025, with a prize of $3 million for the winner.

Participants can join as an association of more than one company or as a single entity integrating multiple autonomous transportation systems. All leading companies with expertise in self-driving transport and integrating mobility systems are invited to participate.
