We are MIT Driverless. We are working to build the first driverless Formula Student racecar in the U.S., targeted for the 2019 Formula Student Driverless Racing series.

For the past 35 years, Formula Student has been the premier collegiate automotive engineering competition. Formula Student teams design, build, test, and race electric and combustion cars. The competition series attracts 100+ teams from top universities. These vehicles trek on the edge of performance and have demonstrated record-setting acceleration and handling. Formula Student Driverless (FSD) is a new competition category that challenges students to build a high-performance autonomous racecar.

FSD is remarkably unique, in that it allows design across the entire stack: from the car’s chassis and electronics layout to high-level motion planning with state-of-the-art sensors and computing hardware.

The MIT team was started in 2017. The team is currently working out of MIT’s Edgerton Center and Beaverworks. We are currently growing! We invite you to apply here, if you are passionate about driverless technology, excited about working with an amazing, friendly team, and willing to tenaciously learn and work with us to build performant systems.


We are fortunate to work with FS Team Delft, our partners in the Formula Student Driverless Racing series. We believe that with our joint strengths, together we can build the strongest racecar in the field.


MIT Driverless relies on the generosity of industry sponsors. We thank the following sponsors for sharing our excitement in pushing forward high-performance driverless technology!
