On Friday the 28th of September, a new AI & Robotics seminar will be organised, hosted by Javier Alonso Mora. The speaker will be Dr. Hans Andersen, who will speak about NuTonomy, an MIT spin-off technology startup company that makes software to build self-driving cars and autonomous mobile robots.
Date: 28-09-2018, 12:30 – 13:45
Location: Lecture Hall D, Faculty of 3mE
doors open from 12.30
Autonomous Vehicles for Mobility on Demand: From Lab Code to Open Road
Imagine a world with a fleet of public transport driven by no-one to your door step with the press of a button. As the number of people living in cities around the world continue to skyrocket, the transportation infrastructure of many cities is being pushed to the limit.
A 21st century solution to this problem is Mobility on Demand (MoD) systems using autonomous vehicles (AV): Taxis, but controlled by computers. These vehicle fleets will blur the lines of private and public transportation and increase convenience.
This talk will present an overview of the technology enabling nuTonomy’s autonomous cars, and its Mobility on Demand service. It will also cover lessons learned and insights gained during testing on public roads in Singapore.
About the speaker: Dr. Hans Andersen
Hans Andersen is a research scientist at Nutonomy, working on developing the planning and control systems for autonomous vehicles. He received the BEng. , MSc. and Ph.D. degrees in mechanical engineering from the National University of Singapore. He was previously with Singapore-MIT Alliance for Research and Technology, where he was involved in Singapore’s first public trial of autonomous vehicles in Oct 2014, which involved two autonomous golf buggies at the Chinese and Japanese Gardens. His research interests include autonomous driving, motion planning, and model predictive control.
We are looking forward to see you all on September the 28th !
