The Team

Our AV Tools team is a group of software engineers creating an innovative software framework so that our autonomous vehicle researchers and software engineers can build their own tools for testing and visualizing vehicle performance.. The framework is written in C++ currently running on desktop using Qt. Our goal is to port it to web technologies so it can run on any browser.
