San Diego Computer Society Offers:

Evaluating Autonomous Vehicles at UC San Diego 

April 15, 2021

6:30 pm – 8:00 pm PDT

Professor Henrik I. Christiansen, UC San Diego

Autonomous vehicles have a long history in San Diego. As we transition not only to use of autonomous vehicles on the highway but also for micro-mobility services it is of interest to explore how we can solve problems such as integration into local communities, but also leverage use of technologies such as sensor fusion, object (road-user) tracking, dynamic planning, and machine learning to build next generation vehicles for community service. Over the last 2-3 years we have setup a laboratory at UC San Diego to develop, test and evaluate technologies for autonomous vehicles. In this presentation we will outline the overall program, some of the key challenges, results from the research/educational efforts and discuss our strategy for the future.


Henrik I Christensen is a distinguished professor of computer science and engineering at UC San Diego and the director of robotics. He also coordinates the Autonomous Vehicle Laboratory. He is the main author of the US National Robotics Roadmap (2009, 2013, 2016 & 2020). He has published more than 300 papers and 8 books. He was awarded the Engelberger Award, the highest honor from the robotics industry 2014 and also named Boeing Supplier of the Year 2014. He has transitioned technology to many companies across automotive, aerospace, logistics, diagnostics and AI. He is the co-founder of six companies. He is a fellow of IEEE and AAAS.
