AoA ICT Lunch seminar series

WASP - Autonomous Driving

​Automation and especially autonomous systems are rapidly changing our society. This lunch seminar focuses on recent research in autonomous driving within WASP - Wallenberg AI, Autonomous Systems and Software Program. The presentations include localization, learning, safety, and complexity.

The program is scheduled for appr one hour (12.00-13.00), with an additional hour for further discussion and exchange of experiences.
During the seminar we offer a light lunch. Please register by the latest on Wednesday 9 May.


Welcome by Bengt Lennartson, profile leader of Area of Advance ICT profile Automated society
Bengt Lennartson is a Profesor at the Systems and Control division, Department of Electrical Engineering. He will give an introduction to automation research, especially within WASP
Safety in autonomous driving: The need of keeping intelligence under control
Patrizio Pelliccione, Associate Professor, Software Engineering, Department of Computer Science and Engineering
A method is proposed where machine learning is combined with reasoning mechanisms, assuring that the decisions taken by a learning algorithm do not violate safety-critical requirements.
5G localization
Henk Wymeersch, Professor, Communication Systems, Department of Electrical Engineering
A technology to satisfy the increased data rate in 5G is mmWave. In combination with large antenna arrays, it is shown how mmWave devices can perform relative localization, orientation estimation, and environment mapping for vehicular scenarios.
Guiding an autonomous vehicle in a complex environment
Jonas Sjöberg, Professor, Mechatronics, Department of Electrical Engineering 
Algorithms for safe and efficient trajectory planning need to be executed in real time. To handle more complex traffic situations one need to consider how these algorithms scale when the problem grows.

The seminar is part of a series of lunch seminars organized by the Area of Advance ICT. Read more here, and sign up for our newsletter to receive upcoming invitations.

Please note: This seminar is part of a community building activity for researchers. Students are welcome, subject to availability, which may mean that students will be unregistered from the seminar if it is fully booked.
