The Princeton Autonomous Vehicle Engineering Team (PAVE) has developed autonomous vehicles for the DARPA Grand Challenge events and the Intelligent Ground Vehicle Competition. The PAVE team members are undergraduates drawn from several departments.
The lead faculty adviser is Alain Kornhauser, Professor of Operations Research and Financial Engineering and member of the Robotics and Intelligent Systems program committee.
"The continued development of autonomous robots has the potential to save lives. At PAVE, we conduct our robotics research with the intent to solve real-world problems, such as reducing the number of motor vehicle accidents. We strive to educate the community about advances in robotics technology, and to inspire students to pursue degrees and career paths related to robotics."
