Background on Torc:Torc has been winning awards and competitions since autonomous vehicles first hit testing sites back in 2005. The team of Virginia Tech student engineers built three autonomous vehicles to compete in the AUVSI Intelligent Ground Vehicle Competition and placed first, second and third. They then competed in the DARPA Grand Challenge placing eighth and ninth only to return in 2007 and place third out of 89 teams. Today, Torc is powering the mining industry to improve operational efficiency with companies such as Caterpillar (CAT). In addition, Torc’s Project Asimov are taking on the real world by detecting crucial yet challenging scenarios, such as when pedestrians step off street corners, or when there is poor weather conditions.
