Keynote: Where the Robot Meets the Road: Realizing Self-Driving Vehicles
Director, Self-Driving Cars
Self-driving vehicles hold the promise of saving lives and reshaping our relationship with the automobile. The Google Self-Driving Car project was created to rapidly advance this technology. Building from the foundation of decades of research and the DARPA Grand Challenges, Google has developed a small fleet of autonomous self-driving vehicles. In this enlightening keynote session, Chris Urmson, Director of Google's Self-Driving Car program, will provide an overview of the work Google has been doing in advancing the state-of-the art in autonomous vehicles. Topics include mapping, on-line sensing, position estimation, object tracking and motion planning. He will also describe the adventures he has had along the way, and Google’s vision of a future replete with self-driving vehicles.
