Talk on "Infrastructure-assisted Autonomous Driving Systems" by Prof. Guoliang Xing

We are pleased to inform you about the upcoming seminar by Prof. Guoliang Xing titled:"Infrastructure-assisted Autonomous Driving Systems" Everyone interested is cordially invited to attend!


Infrastructure-assisted Autonomous Driving Systems


Autonomous driving is poised to revolutionize future transportation systems. However, recent pilot commercial deployments have raised widespread concerns about the safety of autonomous driving systems. In response, a new paradigm has emerged in recent years that leverages smart roadside infrastructure to enhance the limited compute and perception capabilities of standalone vehicles.

In this talk, I will discuss our recent work on infrastructure-assisted autonomous driving systems. First, I will introduce the first open smart lamppost testbed deployed on the CUHK campus, which offers various real-time services for autonomous vehicles. Second, I will present several novel systems that leverage roadside infrastructure to achieve real-time 3D perception fusion, visual simultaneous localization and mapping (SLAM), and online HD mapping with centimeter-level accuracy.

Lastly, I will reflect on the experiences and lessons learned from designing and deploying infrastructure-assisted autonomous driving systems over the past five years.
