Maneuver-based Trajectory Prediction for Self-driving Cars Using Spatio-temporal Convolutional Networks

Roughly 1.3 million people die every year in car accidents around the world. 90% of car accidents are caused by human error. Self-driving cars would not only make the world a safer place, but also make transport and travel more predictable and more efficient. This efficiency would benefit the economy and social sector on a global scale. Image courtesy of ...

Making self-driving cars safer through keener robot perception

PhD student Heng Yang is developing algorithms to help driverless vehicles quickly and accurately assess their surroundings. Aviation became a reality in the early 20th century, but it took 20 years before the proper safety precautions enabled widespread adoption of air travel. Today, the future of fully autonomous vehicles is similarly cloudy, due in large part to safety concerns. Image ...
