Who We Are
We are aUToronto, one of eight teams competing in the SAE/GM AutoDrive Challenge. This three-year autonomous vehicle competition will task students to develop and demonstrate a full autonomous driving passenger vehicle. To learn more about our Year 1 design, you can read our 2019 ICRA paper here. You can also learn more about our object detection and tracking system in the Year 2 competition here.
Autonomous vehicles are on the cusp of revolutionizing the way our world travels. aUToronto is at the forefront of this new wave as the University of Toronto’s self-driving car team. Our ambitious goal is to develop a prototype self-driving car capable of navigating urban driving environments by 2020 as part of the GM/SAE Autodrive Challenge. By leveraging state-of-the-art sensors and partnering with industry leaders, our team is creating a vehicle which will provide a safer, swifter and smarter driving experience.
About SAE/GM AutoDrive Challenge
The AutoDrive Challenge is a three-year collegiate autonomous vehicle competition hosted by SAE International and mainly sponsored by General Motors (GM). The technical goal of the competition is for the self-driving vehicle to navigate an urban driving course in an automated driving mode, and achieving SAE Standard level 4 autonomy by the end of year 3.
