Welcome!

Welcome to the homepage for aUToronto, the University of Toronto's self-driving car team. We are one of eight teams that will compete in the new SAE/GM AutoDrive Challenge. GM will donate an all-electric Bolt to each team, which we will equip with sensors and program to be self-driving!

Bolt

The competition runs from 2017 to 2020 with three increasingly difficult challenges to be completed. More information can be found in the competition description document.
