👋 Say hello to CAR!

In January 2022, CAR was founded to bring together the diverse work in autonomous systems throughout the university under one umbrella.

Our members come from 10+ departments and 25+ majors across CMU spanning engineering, robotics, and computer science, as well as human-computer interaction, information systems, and business administration.

🏆 We race to win.

Carnegie Autonomous Racing supports race teams across global student competitions.

F1TENTH

F1Tenth was founded by a cohort of professors from the University of Pennsylvania to foster interest, excitement, and critical thinking about the field of autonomous racing. To promote participation, teams compete with RC like cars, approximately 1/10th the scale of a formula student car. Carnegie Autonomous Racing participated in this race for the first time in February 2022.

FSD

Inspired by the Formula Student Automotive Engineers collegiate engineering competition, Formula Student Driverless challenges students to design and build an autonomous formula-style car.

LEARN TO RACE

Learn to Race was founded in 2020 as a capstone project for CMU Masters and Ph.D. students. The intention was to build an OpenAI gym compliant, multimodal control environment. The project’s success led the team to publish whitepapers, present research across international conferences, build a virtual racing simulator to apply reinforcement learning techniques, and host an annual Virtual Autonomous Racing Challenge with over 300 participating teams.
