Roborace @ CMU
Carnegie Mellon University is the first U.S.-based team to join Roborace, a novel autonomous racing series. Created to accelerate the development of autonomous software, Roborace pushes the current technology to its limits and provides education about autonomous driving.Learn More
We’re CMU Roborace Team.
The first U.S.-based team to join the Roborace series, Carnegie Mellon’s School of Computer Science is widely recognized as one of the best computer science programs in the world.
Accelerating innovation in autonomous driving systems and exciting a new generation of students to pursue STEM and AI careers.
Students and faculty across Carnegie Mellon collaborate to compete in this novel intersection of technology and sport.
Roborace supplies a platform for the competition, including venues, vehicles, compute platforms, and sensor stacks.
Teams bring their AI algorithms to compete head-to-head on a level playing field.
CMU's History in Autonomous Driving
The first self-driving vehicle was created at CMU, with top speed of 20 mph.
Traveled from Pittsburgh to San Diego in the No Hands Across America Tour, driving autonomously for 98% of the trip, with top speed of 60 mph.
Finished a 60-mile desert road course 100% autonomously.
Tartan Racing’s “Boss”
Won DARPA Urban Challenge, taking home a $2 million first prize.
CMU joined the Roborace series and finished on podium in its first race.
Our team is comprised of Carnegie Mellon students and alumni. For many of our teammates, the platform serves as a research capstone project with the goal of developing state-of-the-art technology in a domain where autonomous driving systems are pushed to their limits. Together with Roborace, we will provide an alternative perspective on the progression of autonomous driving technology.
