Autonomous Vehicles In Berlin: Chances And Challenges
Estrel Convention Center, Berlin, Germany
11:20 - 11:40
The Freie Universität Berlin is researching in the area of autonomous vehicles since 2006.
This talk will introduce what the challenges in autonomous driving have been so far and what are the lessons learned from driving autonomously in Germany, Switzerland and Mexico.
Prof. Göhring is on the faculty of the Computer Science Department at Freie Universität Berlin.
His research focuses on robotic perception, self-localization and planning.
Starting as an undergrad in the field of robotics in 2002 and later as a PhD student at Humboldt-Universtität Berlin, he focused on cooperative perception. During his two year research as a PostDoc at the ICSI at Berkeley, California, USA, he applied vision based machine learning approaches on robot platforms.
Since 2010 - being part of one of the first self-driving car projects in Germany - he is working in the field of autonomous driving at the Freie Universität Berlin.
Founded in 1948 and located in the South-East of Berlin, the Freie Universität Berlin counts more than 30000 students and approx. 5000 employees.
It is one of the leading research institutions in the field of autonomous driving and mobile robotics in Germany. Started by Prof. Raúl Rojas in 2006, the autonomous vehicle project is part of the Dahlem Center of Machine Learning and Robotics (DCMLR) and part of the Computer Science department. It allows Postdoctoral researchers, PhD-students and undergraduates to work side by side and to learn from one another.
