From Dr. Bryan Albrecht, President, Gateway Technical College 


On Monday in partnership with the University of Wisconsin Madison and the City of Racine we announced "The Badger" a fully autonomous vehicle. We have received many questions about the vehicle so I thought you might be interested in the following video prepared by Mellissa Martin from Lab Midwest. Melissa was one of the first people to ride in the vehicle and did an excellent job capturing the experience.  Please feel free to share the link with others interested in connected systems and autonomous vehicle technology. 

The Badger!
