Inaugural workshop for new AutoDrive Challenge student competition held at SAE World Headquarters.

WITHOUT A PROPERLY EDUCATED engineering workforce, the road to automated vehicles could be a rocky one.

Helping take the bumps out are SAE International and General Motors with AutoDrive Challenge, SAE's newest Collegiate Design Series competition now being rolled out. AutoDrive Challenge took a bold step forward this week at SAE's Pittsburgh-area headquarters with its first workshop. About 65 participating students, faculty, SAE staff and corporate sponsors met to review Year 1 Competition Rules and discuss the basic technical and safety elements involved in retrofitting a conventional car for autonomous driving.
