Uber Info-Session: Uber ATG: What's Hard in Self-Driving

Information Session | October 3 | 4-6 p.m. | Soda Hall, HP Auditorium

 Electrical Engineering and Computer Sciences (EECS)

Self-driving vehicle will be on display outside Soda Hall beginning at 4pm!

Tech talk presented by Alex Ansari, Berkeley alum and Uber ATG Autonomy Capabilities Lead. We'll have engineers on-site to meet students 1:1 and take resumes (mini-career fair style), as well as catering from Berkeley Thai House.

Tech Talk Abstract
Self-driving cars have the potential to bring efficient, safe, and low-cost mobility to people around the world. At Uber ATG we’ve been working diligently to make this future a reality. We have collected millions of miles of autonomous driving data and have completed tens of thousands of passenger trips in multiple cities in the US. So, what’s the state of self-driving cars today?

This talk will explore several practical challenges in bridging the gap between the current state of the technology and viable self-driving cars of the future. We will discuss several example challenges in perception, motion prediction, planning, and control that we are solving at Uber ATG, challenges we believe must be addressed before self-driving cars become a reality.
