Multi-View Fusion of Sensor Data for Improved Perception and Prediction in Autonomous Driving


Abstract "We present an end-to-end method for object detection and trajectory prediction utilizing multi-view representations of LiDAR returns. Our method builds on a state-of-the-art Bird's-Eye View (BEV) network that fuses voxelized features from a sequence of historical LiDAR data as well as rasterized high-definition map to perform detection and prediction tasks. We extend the BEV network ... » read more

Research on quantum cognition in autonomous driving


Abstract "Autonomous vehicles for the intention of human behavior of the estimated traffic participants and their interaction is the main problem in automatic driving system. Classical cognitive theory assumes that the behavior of human traffic participants is completely reasonable when studying estimation of intention and interaction. However, according to the quantum cognition and ... » read more

Abstract: "This paper presents a 40 GHz voltage-controlled oscillator (VCO) and frequency divider chain fabricated in STMicroelectronics 28 nm ultrathin body and box (UTBB) fully depleted silicon-on-insulator (FD-SOI) complementary metal-oxide–semiconductor (CMOS) process with eight metal layers back-end-of-line (BEOL) option. VCOs architecture is based on an LC-tank with p-type metal-oxide... » read more

Multistep staircase avalanche photodiodes with extremely low noise & deterministic amplification (lidar)


Engineers at University of Texas at Austin and University of Virginia developed a light detector that can amplify weak light signals and reduce noise to improve the accuracy of lidar. Find technical paper here. Abstract "In 1982, Capasso and co-workers proposed the solid-state analogue of the photomultiplier tube, termed the staircase avalanche photodiode. Through a combination of co... » read more

Accellera’s Functional Safety Group White Paper


"The objective of the Functional Safety Working Group is to standardize information for capturing and propagating the safety intent from the system down to the SoC / IP design and implementation including failure mode propagation, verification, validation, reliability and Safety Mechanisms.

A Survey of Autonomous Vehicles: Enabling Communication Technologies and Challenges


Abstract "The Department of Transport in the United Kingdom recorded 25,080 motor vehicle fatalities in 2019. This situation stresses the need for an intelligent transport system (ITS) that improves road safety and security by avoiding human errors with the use of autonomous vehicles (AVs). Therefore, this survey discusses the current development of two main components of an ITS: (1) gathering... » read more
