Technical Keynote Abstract- Professor Alberto Broggi

VisLab efforts in the field of perception for autonomous driving. VisLab has been active in the field of intelligent vehicles for the last two decades: after the first test (2000+ km in semi-autonomous mode in 1998), VisLab designed and realized the perception system of TerraMax, the largest entry in the DARPA Challenges, and was the only vehicle that reached the end of the DARPA Grand Challenge with vision as primary sensor.


In 2010 VisLab conceived and realized the longest ever test for autonomous driving: 13000 km from Italy to China. The presentation will discuss the results of this test and present VisLab’s stereo vision technology that is currently being implemented also on off-road, mining, construction, and agricultural vehicles. The presentation will also focus on the latest developments, carried out within a ONR-VisLab joint Project.
