Evaluating Autonomous Vehicles at UC San Diego

Share

Sponsored by the IEEE Computer Society San Diego Chapter.

Co-sponsored by the Computational Intelligence Society San Diego Chapter.


Autonomous vehicles have a long history in San Diego. As we transition not only to use of autonomous vehicles on the highway but also for micro-mobility services it is of interest to explore how we can solve problems such as integration into local communities, but also leverage use of technologies such as sensor fusion, object (road-user) tracking, dynamic planning, and machine learning to build next generation vehicles for community service. Over the last 2-3 years we have setup a laboratory at UC San Diego to develop, test and evaluate technologies for autonomous vehicles. In this presentation we will outline the overall program, some of the key challenges, results from the research/educational efforts and discuss our strategy for the future.

Evaluating Autonomous Vehicles at UC San Diego
