Steve Waslander talks about the future of autonomous driving on CBC’s The Current
What does the recall of two million Teslas mean for the future of autonomous driving? Autonomous vehicle expert, Steve Waslander, joined Matt Galloway from CBC News’ The Current to talk about autonomous vehicle safety, design and what’s next for the industry.
Robots that see & understand
Professor Steve Waslander’s (UTIAS) TRAIL Lab designs deep learning and computer vision principles to help autonomous vehicles detect objects and estimate their dimensions, orientation and pose.
Professor Goldie Nejat’s (MIE) Autonomous Systems and Biomechatronics Lab uses assistive and social robots to help people age in place, and support them in hospitals and long-term care facilities.
Professor Jessica Burgner-Kahrs’ (CS) Continuum Robotics Lab develops snake-like robots that can traverse confined spaces, manipulate objects in complex environments, and to conform to curvilinear paths in task space.
From objects to data
Professor Yu Sun’s (MIE) Advanced Micro and Nanosystems Lab creates robotics systems and 3D vision algorithms that can inspect auto parts, identify defects, and quickly improve quality control.
