Project Summary Project Information

The Autonomous People Mover (APM) is an electric, self-driving golf cart that can transport people from one location to another while avoiding obstacles in its way. Using a variety of different cameras and sensors, the APM can detect objects and terrain, and safely transport passengers around campus.

Once complete, the APM will be summoned via a text message, after which it would drive itself to the customer’s location, pick them up, and determine a destination using voice recognition. Ultimately, the purpose of the APM is twofold: to provide accessibility to campus goers, and to act as a platform for research and refinement of autonomous vehicle technologies.
