Dr. Ting Yuan | Senior Research Scientist & Principle Tech Lead for Autonomous Driving of Daimler
Autonomous driving poses unique challenges for real world vehicle systems due to the complex driving environment where the autonomous vehicle finds itself in and interacts itself with surrounding objects. Dr. Yuan will talk about the motivation/understanding of autonomous driving from the point of view of Mercedes-Benz and the current trend around autonomous driving in Silicon Valley.
He will introduce different environment representations from heterogeneous automotive sensors i.e. radar, stero/mono camera and LiDAR systems. The relevant state estimation algorithms, sensor fusion frameworks and the evaluation procedures with reference ground truth are presented in detail. An interesting glimpse of the data set obtained from a sensor configuration that would be used in the future Mercedes-Benz autonomous vehicles will be shown.
Dr. Yuan will try to elaborate the relationship in proper sensor setup, clean software architecture, and advanced algorithms for a satisfying autonomous vehicular settings and requirements. In particular, the state of the art technology for autonomous driving in China will be discussed.
