TechLab at Mcity students team up on driverless delivery service

October 8, 2020

Autonomous vehicles have the capacity to revolutionize the entire transportation industry, affecting everything from food delivery to morning commutes. The 2020 cohort of TechLab at Mcity students made it their mission to change the way we consider logistics by creating a fleet of self-driving delivery vehicles. The team, pictured left to right above, includes James Boyce, Anikeit Chanda, Rakshita Gouni and (Eugene) Tsai.

TechLab at Mcity is a Company-in-Residence program for early-stage advanced mobility companies in the connected and autonomous vehicle (CAV) industry. Participating companies sponsor technical projects that are housed at Mcity and the University of Michigan’s Ann Arbor campus, providing an opportunity for talented, technically-skilled U-M undergraduate engineering students to gain hands-on experience.

The TechLab program is managed by the U-M Center for Entrepreneurship, in partnership with Mcity.

The 2020 cohort of TechLab students has been working with Ann Arbor-based Refraction AI, which builds and deploys robot delivery vehicles.
