Robust and Generalisable Vehicle Automation

Robust and generalisable approaches and strategies to solving key challenges for autonomous vehicle operations

Organisers: Stewart Worrall, Mao Shan (ACFR – University of Sydney, Australia)

Abstract: The workshop is aimed at robust and generalisable approaches and strategies to solving key challenges for autonomous vehicle operations, including sensing, localisation, mapping, motion estimation and planning. Through the workshop, we hope to help the intended audience understand how the state-of-the-art work in ITS research community is relevant to improving the robustness and generalisability of one or more of those key components given a realistic urban environment that includes a variety of environmental conditions, and different operating contexts (road, carpark, tunnel, urban canyon, unstructured park, and areas with dynamic obstacles).
