AutoDrive Challenge

SAE International and General Motors (GM) have partnered to headline sponsor AutoDrive Challenge™, the latest of SAE International’s Collegiate Design Series.

This autonomous vehicle competition tasks students to develop and demonstrate a full autonomous driving passenger vehicle. The technical goal of the competition is to navigate an urban driving course in an automated driving mode as described by SAE Standard (J3016) level 4 definition.

Kettering University is participating in the competition alongside the following schools:

  • Queens University
  • Penn State University - University Park
  • The Ohio State University
  • Michigan Technical University
  • North Carolina A&T大学
  • 德克萨斯州的一个&米大学
  • University of Wisconsin - Madison
  • University of Toronto
  • 弗吉尼亚理工大学

Kettering University Involvement

Kettering University’s campus is equipped with the infrastructure and faculty expertise to develop the next generation of autonomous vehicle technologies.

基础设施

Kettering is the only college campus in the country with an industry-standard proving ground. The facility includes a low-speed road course with elevation and surface changes, a 3.25 acre test pad built to race track performance specifications and other features aimed at creating diverse testing environments. A garage facility includes automotive bays, conference and office space and indoor lab space.

Faculty Expertise

Faculty in Mechanical Engineering, Electrical Engineering, Computer Engineering and Computer Science collaboratively developed the goals, objectives and opportunities for current and future Kettering students to participate in the AutoDrive Challenge.

This challenge puts Kettering students at the forefront of technological innovation related to the development of autonomous vehicles, connects them with a network of scholars and peers from the nation’s elite schools who are attempting to solve similar challenges and provides access to national workshops hosted by SAE International.
