This talk features some of the challenges faced in developing a self-driving racing car – perception, localisation, path planning, vehicle control – and will outline some of the live research projects which go hand-in-hand addressing these.

SYNOPSIS
We have been invited for a return visit to meet the robots and this time autonomous vehicles as well. Researchers will put them through their paces and explain the associated research.

Autonomous Vehicles: Racing and Research
The advent of autonomous vehicles has sparked excitement in developing self-driving racing cars. Oxford Brookes University (OBU) has for many years run the UK’s most successful Formula Student racing team, and taught many of the Engineers working in Formula 1. Now OBU has a multi-disciplinary team of Computing and Engineering students working closely alongside the Autonomous Driving research group, working hard to develop a fully self-driving racing car.
