12 weeks. Eight students. One Toyota Corolla. No hands on the steering wheel.
Over 12 weeks weeks in 2016, eight WIT engineering students achieved a first for the Applied Robotics Lab - a Self Driving Robotic Car.
After just 12 weeks of working on the White Board to Self Drive Car project students on the one-year BEng in Electronic Engineering, an add on course for the two-year Higher Certificate in Engineering in Electronic Engineering had a Toyota Corolla safely finish a test drive on the institute’s Cork Road campus.
The students are part of the WIT School of Engineering Applied Electronics Stream, a study pathway that allows a student to get an honours degree in Applied Electronics without the prerequisite of Higher Level Maths.
Watch how they did it.
