Kettering University Involvement
Kettering University’s campus is equipped with the infrastructure and faculty expertise to develop the next generation of autonomous vehicle technologies.
Kettering is the only college campus in the country with an industry-standard proving ground. The facility includes a low-speed road course with elevation and surface changes, a 3.25 acre test pad built to race track performance specifications and other features aimed at creating diverse testing environments. A garage facility includes automotive bays, conference and office space and indoor lab space.
Faculty in Mechanical Engineering, Electrical Engineering, Computer Engineering and Computer Science collaboratively developed the goals, objectives and opportunities for current and future Kettering students to participate in the AutoDrive Challenge.
