Is there a law against having fun during autonomous vehicle simulation testing?
Ph.D. students at Georgia Tech had their own autonomous vehicle testbed called Auto Rally. A quick look at some of Auto Rally’s YouTube videos shows that there’s potentially a lot of fun involved with examining autonomous vehicle technology. The idea behind Auto Rally is that simulations of autonomous systems aren’t all that accurate, and full-scale vehicles are expensive to run. So a scaled-down version of autonomous systems can provide a happy medium. The core software and simulation environment for the platform are publicly available along with tutorials. The car itself includes a Nvidia GTX-750ti processor, a 10-hp dc brushless motor, and various wireless radios.
