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.

We are a team of ambitious engineers designing and building the future of autonomous vehicles.

Our Mission 

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.
