The Fast and the Autonomous
By Matthew Westmoreland

In a small corner of Sitterson Hall sits a fleet of pint-size cars that can see and navigate independently, winning races for the team of UNC computer science students that created them. While the stakes are low for these high-tech toys, it’s a completely different game when applied to full-size vehicles in the real world — the application of professor Parasara Sridhar Duggirala’s research.

These Small Cars Can Help Drive the Autonomous Future
By AARIAN MARSHALL

OVER THE NEXT three years, Houssam Abbas will carefully send 80 modified Traxxas RC rally cars—the Ford Fiesta model—to research facilities around the country. Some will go to Arizona State University, others to Clemson University, the State University of New York at Stony Brook, UCLA, Vanderbilt University, or the University of Iowa. In each place, researchers will open their packages, take out the 21-inch, modified, 1/10th-scale car, and begin to run tests.

RACING FOR AN A: STUDENTS IN UNIQUE COURSE PUT SELF-DRIVING CARS TO FINAL TEST
By Fariss Samarrai

While most students last week were studying late for final exams, 32 University of Virginia engineering students were staying up late for a different reason: They were testing miniature cars in preparation for an autonomous vehicle race that was their final exam.

Researchers Are Using Model Cars to Perfect Autonomous Vehicles
By Vineeth Joel Patel

Waymo, Uber, Lyft, Chevrolet, Ford, and more have autonomous cars on public roads in the U.S. Working on autonomous technology isn't a cheap venture, but it's something these brands don't have to worry about, as they have hundreds of millions of dollars to throw at developing the tech. For everyone else, there might be a better alternative – model cars.

At New College House, small self-driving cars race each other
By Daniel Wang

On Wednesday night, students across the Penn community watched a self-driving car fly through a racetrack in the New College House Dining Pavilion. They were attending the F1/10 Autonomous Racing demonstration, an initiative that encourages students to explore self-driving vehicles by developing a F1 race car at 1/10th of its regular scale.
