    Time & Location: 4:15 - 5:00 pm in 2231 Old Main

    Speaker: Konstantin Slutsky (nuTonomy)

    Title: Autonomous vehicles in a nutshell

    Abstract: In the talk I will outline the major components that an autonomous vehicle's system often consists of, including controller, planner, perception and localization. We'll discuss the purpose of each component and mention some of the mathematical tools that are used. The aim will be to demystify autonomous vehicles and to provide the audience with some high level understanding of the standard robotics' approach to autonomous systems.
