With a combined score of 370.38, the University of Toronto came out on top after remaining steadfast in their goal of developing an SAE J3016™ Standard Level 4 autonomous vehicle (AV).
Zac Pace, the program manager for the AutoDrive Challenge, said: “I commend each student for their engagement and participation in what has been an exceedingly challenging year. The work that these students have accomplished stands at the forefront of this technology space and all have performed extremely well, particularly as we’ve navigated the many challenges in 2020 and 2021.”
Over the past four years, eight collegiate teams have been competing to develop and demonstrate a fully autonomous passenger vehicle. From June 5-14, these teams showcased their vehicles by running through a mock city and proving ground built for the testing of these wirelessly connected and autonomous vehicles.
