Inventing the Future

Inventing the Future

Welcome to Victor Tango AutoDrive


In April of 2017, Virginia Tech, alongside seven other schools, was selected to be a
part of the GM and SAE International sponsored AutoDrive Challenge. The objective
of this competition is to plan, design, and build a fully autonomous ground vehicle in
the next three years. To participate in this competition, the team has to provide
detailed instructions, including the necessary equipment, working hours, and project
members. It is required to create an approximate budget for the costs mentioned above
and a car repair financing plan. The team will be provided a Chevy Bolt Electric in
which they will have to convert into an autonomous vehicle. The vehicle will then be
 put to the test in a rigorous urban driving course.
