Stanford autonomous car learns to handle unknown conditions
Stanford researchers have developed a neural network that integrates past driving experiences from driving trials from a skilled amateur driver and physics-based systems. The neural network system outperformed the physics-based system in both high-friction and low-friction scenarios and did particularly well in situations that mixed these two conditions. Link.
Autonomous car research at Stanford
Stanford researchers from across campus are working on a wide-range of questions relating to our driverless future from exploring complex ethics questions, developing new sensor technologies to real-world testing of autonomous cars all to help ensure the safety of driverless vehicles. Link.

Model Fidelity and Trajectory Planning for AVs Driving at the Limit
John Subosits, Ph.D. candidate with the Dynamic Design Lab will present at our first webinar of the year. Subosits' work includes modeling the dynamics of vehicles operating at the limits of friction and trajectory optimization. His research projects include experimental quantification of the advantages of actuator coordination and higher fidelity vehicle models for trajectory planning at the limits, online trajectory replanning, and capturing the effects of road topography on the vehicle’s limits.
