Today's cars are getting more and more sophisticated in their behaviors, but true autonomy needs truly expensive sensors. Carlos Asuncion of UC Berkeley participated in the CAT Vehicle program in 2014, and he was interviewed by Ted Simons for the Arizona Horizon program on PBS 8 (KAET) in Phoenix, AZ.
Amanda Pyryt of the University of Maryland Baltimore County was a participant in the 2014 in the Cat Vehicle REU at the University of Arizona. Check out how she describes what her experience was like as part of the REU program, and her project on switched control for driverless cars.
How can you design experiments that High School students (with no coding experience) can do on a full-sized car? That's what Destinee Batson of Northeastern University studied in Summer 2014 for the CAT Vehicle REU at the University of Arizona.
