|The student engineers at UM
design and race all kinds of
vehicles. We got to sit in some
of their test cars. Others, like
the solar-powered car, were
too delicate for us to try—
because they have to be so
lightweight, they can be
broken very easily.
|The biggest vehicle we saw|
close up was a Huron
Valley Ambulance, which
we got to go inside. The
Emergency Med Techs
told us about their
equipment and how you
can train for their jobs.
|The smallest vehicles we saw were
the robotic ones at the Artificial
Intelligence Lab. Some are
remote-controlled, but others have
computers and go where their
programming tells them to
without anyone directing them.
|Not all the vehicles being made at UM have wheels. We also toured the
and went inside a wind tunnel where planes and cars are tested while being designed.
