Self-Driving Cars That Recognize Free Space Can Better Detect Objects

PITTSBURGH, June 16, 2020 — Researchers at Carnegie Mellon University (CMU) have demonstrated that they can significantly improve detection accuracy in self-driving cars by helping the vehicle recognize what it does not see. Self-driving vehicles use 3D data from lidar to represent objects as a point cloud and then try to match those point clouds to a library of 3D representations of objects. The problem with that, according to Peiyn Hu, a Ph.D. student in CMU’s Robotics Institute, is that the 3D data from the vehicle’s lidar isn’t exactly 3D — the sensor can’t see the occluded parts...Read full article
