Automakers and universities team up to fix AV industry’s talent gap

When the Center for Automotive Research (CAR) at Ohio State University began over 30 years ago, it focused on traditional subjects like the transmissions, noise and vibrations from internal combustion engines, with some attention paid to what was then a growing trend of automotive electronics.

Now, with the advent of autonomous vehicles (AVs), its focus has changed.

“What used to be a predominantly mechanical engineering discipline with some electronics sprinkled in has become an industry that depends on computing power, computer science, electrical and electronic systems and electrochemical energy storage,”  Giorgio Rizzoni, CAR’s director and an OSU mechanical and aerospace

Student team challenged to create and test fully autonomous car

UNIVERSITY PARK, Pa. — In the near future, a General Motors car will be driven autonomously on a test track, navigating potential obstacles like cones, road signs and pedestrian simulations, with its self-driving abilities completely designed by Penn State students. 

It will be the culmination of years-long work completed by members of the Penn State Advanced Vehicle Team (AVT) at Penn State, who were selected to participate in the AutoDrive Challenge II.

“The plan is to develop some new technology that may not be out there already,” said Zach Kerr, a junior majoring in mechanical engineering and current Penn
