”Take care of your car… It will take care of you on the road.”

Our team is based in the beautiful city of Bologna. We are Masters and PhD students who have decided to collaborate together. Our team is energetic and diverse with members from different countries, but united by a common passion for technology. We recognize the importance of self driving cars and their impact on urban planning and other aspects of daily life. We believe our use of traditional motion planning algorithms with machine learning will result in an ideal self-driving car that can navigate around complicated obstacles and adapt to the changing environment as well. Self-driving cars are the future and we want to embrace the future.
