Cornell Electric Vehicles

Cornell Electric Vehicles is the foremost project team at Cornell University dedicated to building autonomous, hyper-efficient electric cars. Our deeply knowledgeable interdisciplinary organization operates at the pace of a startup and has repeatedly produced industry-grade vehicles. Having placed highly at Shell Eco-Marathon Americas, we are a respected team operating at the limits of emergent technologies. Endeavoring to integrate level 2 autonomy, enabling advanced driver assistance in our road-ready vehicles, into our vehicles reflects our determination to continue forging at the leading edge of innovation.


By mid-2024, we endeavor to achieve Level 2 autonomy with multiple demo targets in-between, starting with testing our autonomous brake system by the end of 2023. Our interdisciplinary team has had the opportunity to work across subteams, from mechanical autonomy working to retrofit previous vehicles with our autonomous braking system to the Electrical and Data Apps & Analysis teams working to integrate our Data Aquisition system into readable dashboards.


Any support you can provide goes a long way in aiding our team to design, manufacture, and integrate new technologies that fuel our vehicles. A donation to Cornell Electric Vehicles is a contribution to the future of clean, efficient transportation, and the learning of our hardworking team members. Thank you for your generous support!
