Real-time Semantic Segmentation in Autonomous Bus

The video shows the coarse segmentation in industrial zone, applying deep learning models.

Model Predictive Control on golfcar

Based on perception from LIDAR, we design a MPC on golfcar to control it’s steering wheel angle to follow the given trajectory.

Tranversibility extraction from 16-beam LIDAR

We extract in real-time the tranversible of an on-road vehicle under dynamic mobile situation.

A recent collection of 3D perception

Here is a collection of our recent results in 3D perception in the context of autonomous driving, including key object detection, path planning, local mapping, tranversibility extraction, etc.

LIDAR Odometry Demo

  • Left shows multi-sensors mounted on a car, Velodyne VLP-16, Occam Omni Camera IMU and GPS are equipped.

  • Right is and a demo of large-scale LIDAR Odometry. The data is recorded in Hong Kong, from Hang Hau to HKUST. Total size of the map is larger than 3km x 0.9km x 0.1km.
