A female student readies her autonomous vehicle to race.

Autonomous Vehicle Challenge

We host high school teams from around the country in a fast-paced, exciting autonomous vehicle challenge. It's a fun and exciting way to improve your math, science and engineering skills and put them to the test!

Autonomous Vehicle Challenge

Bring your best game to the Rose-Hulman High School Autonomous Vehicle Challenge!

Your goal: Maximum speed without losing control. Going fast is only part of the challenge; you also need to keep your vehicle on the track, making the best time you can while staying between the black lines! 

Autonomous vehicles include microcontrollers and sensors to drive autonomously around oval and clover-figure race tracks. Each team has a minimum of five students and must have at least one female or minority student. All-female/all-minority teams receive special financial incentives.

To get your team up to the starting line, email faculty sponsor, Dr. Marc Herniter.
