Autonomous Race Cars Hit the Road

Watch how automotive engineers at Clemson University are tasked with designing and creating an autonomous Indy car prototype for a historic race at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway.

“The Indy Autonomous Challenge provided our students with an unparalleled experiential learning opportunity,” said Zoran Filipi , chair of the Department of Automotive Engineering at Clemson. “They had a chance to collaborate with multiple teams, including industry partners, on the cutting edge of sensing and autonomy, much as they would in a real-world setting. The whole team did a fantastic job of completing the vehicle on time despite major challenges.”
