The UW-Madison College of Engineering is leading the federally designated Wisconsin Automated Vehicle Proving Grounds collaboration (WiscAV). Researchers in the Traffic Operations and Safety Laboratory and throughout UW-Madison are helping drive autonomous and connected vehicle research through projects like a partnership with the city of Madison to test connected vehicle technology on South Park Street. The College of Engineering also houses a full-scale driving simulator.
On April 24 and 25, TOPS researchers showcased a Navya driverless shuttle on campus. Visitors had an opportunity to ride in the vehicle, learn how it works, and talk with the researchers.
