Through the SAE CivicProgress Challenge™ universities will think critically about emerging technology issues relevant to transportation, public policy, and public acceptance of new mobility options. Teams of university students will design and develop, conceptually, a solution that provides a universally designed (functional for everyone to use) concept for a disability. Immersed in the SAE International’s Government & Industry Conference universities will present their solution in various ways including a technical design presentation and a showcase opportunity on SAE International’s Government & Industry show floor.
The SAE CivicProgress Challenge™ is a student engineering design competition in the SAE Emerging Technology Series, which provides an opportunity for students to think critically about current and future emerging technologies in the mobility engineering industry. Each program within the SAE Emerging Technology Series challenges universities to create a team of multi-disciplinary engineers to collaborate, design, present, and defend conceptual designs to industry professionals.
