Beyond Autonomous Cars: Open Autonomous Vehicle Safety Competitions - Mike Cannon, Clemson University

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

By applying open collaborative concepts, to autonomous vehicle research, we could further advance the safety in “self driving” vehicles. The vision is to have an open autonomous vehicle safety competition, in which a vehicle is required to maneuver a difficult course, erroring on the side of least bodily injury. The specifics of this session are to see if there is interest in autonomous vehicle safety competitions. There will be a demonstration of TrafficVision, an existing “off auto” sensor technology. The session will end with thoughts on what an open autonomous vehicle safety competition venue would consist of, specifically seeking input from the community.

Audience: Automotive Enthusiasts, Robotic / autonomous vehicle engineers, Robotic / autonomous software developers

The ultimate benefits of the this would produce safer transportation system(s). Decrease the time to have working autonomous vehicles on city streets. Create new collaborative environments between the auto industry and universities focused on open collaboration for safety.

Mike Marshall was introduced to Unix while a Computer Science student at Clemson University in South Carolina around 1982. Clemson students used an IBM Mainframe at that time, but Mike had a part-time job in the Forestry department where they were using a Radio Shack model 16B running Xenix. Later Mike got a job as a junior VMS systems programmer at Clemson's computer center which luckily coincided with the NSF's funding of the NSFnet. Since Mike... Read More →
