Rethinking vehicle autonomy with full infrastructural support and connectivity to road agents

Organisatsiooni nimi
Autonomous Driving Lab
Autonomous vehicles research has progressed rapidly during the last decade, but challenges remain in their wide-spread deployment. Modular as well as end-to-end [1] approaches to vehicle autonomy, alike, suffer from the limitation of not being able to cover edge cases that arise in everyday traffic. At the same time, it is also believed that more and more infrastructural support and interconnectivity between vehicles will be available to autonomous vehicles of the future over time.

In this project, you will have the possibility to propose an autonomous-driving system which has access to as much information from infrastructural sensors and other road agents (including, but not limited to, vehicles, pedestrians, bicycles etc.) as needed to be fail safe in all (usual as well as edge) situations. After a thorough literature review of the open challenges in vehicle autonomy you will investigate methods for meeting those challenges given the connectivity with infrastructure and road agents. You will then validate the proposed system in simulation.

The results will also potentially be published in the form of a research paper.
