About Us

Wisconsin Autonomous is at the University of Wisconsin-Madison dedicated to the research and development of self-driving vehicles. By utilizing state-of-the-art technologies and interacting with industry leaders, we are actively developing the next-generation of engineers. Established in 2018, Wisconsin Autonomous has grown into a multi-disciplinary organization with over 40 undergraduate and graduate students.

We currently compete in two international competitions:

  • The evGrandPrix Autonomous Series is a national competition that races student-modified autonomous go-karts.
  • The AutoDrive Challenge™ II is a four year competition sponsored by SAE and General Motors where teams develop and demonstrate an autonomous vehicle (AV) that can navigate urban driving courses.


AutoDrive Challenge™ II

We are developing a self driving car

The AutoDrive Challenge™ II is a selective, four-year international collegitae competition focused on the development of a car that can navigate urban scenarios as described by SAE J3016™ Standard Level 4 automation. Read more about our involvement in the challenge below.


evGrand Prix

We are building a self driving go-kart

The evGrand Prix Autonomous Series is an intercollegiate competition designed to give teams a simple, affordable, and scalable mechanism for developing autonomous technologies. Teams outfit an electric go-kart with sensors, actuators and software to race head-to-head autonomously. Learn more about our evGrand Prix team below.
