After successfully converting a Chevrolet Camaro to run as a plug-in hybrid electric vehicle, a team of Luminosity students at ASU’s Polytechnic Campus are currently in the process of retrofitting the car to be a fully autonomous vehicle. Reminiscent of IBM’s Chess Playing A.I., Deep Blue, the team aspires to challenge one of the world’s top NASCAR racers with a fully autonomous vehicle capable of winning a head-to-head time-trail race in what is to be a classic man vs machine face-off. Upon completing this work, the lab will have access to one of few existing vehicles of this type, opening the door to a portfolio of research on autonomous vehicles operating in high speed conditions.
