Several fully autonomous vehicles, featuring an array of sensors, processors and software will be running demonstrations at a nearby location to the Michigan Science Center.
Visitors and press are invited to see first-hand what the latest technology can do and talk to the engineers developing the full vehicle systems. AutoSens attendees will have time to get up close and hands-on with the vehicles to learn about how they operate.
Attendance is included in all AutoSens ticket bundles, including AutoSens LITE, which also provides half-day access to the main AutoSens exhibition (Tuesday afternoon only).
- Date: May 14, 2019
- Time: 12pm – 6pm
- Location: Check-in at the Michigan Science Center, to be shuttled to nearby demo location
- If you’ve never been for a ride in a car that can drive itself, you are in for an extraordinary experience.
- A rare opportunity to get a hands-on experience in a fully autonomous vehicle, alongside the engineers who have implemented the technology.
- You can watch videos and read about self driving cars all day, but there’s nothing to quite match the experience of sitting in a car as it drives itself around the track, navigating the corners with ease and identifying objects along the way.
- You will get up close and personal with the technology, and gain unparalleled insight into the systems that make self-driving cars tick.
More details about this day will be available soon. Contact us if you would like to run a demo vehicle in 2019.
Dataspeed showcased their complete By-Wire controllable 2018 Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid, for the autonomous vehicle demonstration. The demonstration demonstrated this by-wire control using precise trajectory following, with accurate, high data-rate output from a Novatel GNSS/INS RTK system. The algorithm behind the path following system uses adaptive control concepts to regulate the throttle and brake inputs to react to hills, air resistance and other disturbances, and nonlinear state feedback control to generate steering inputs to minimize the lateral error from the programmed route. The purpose of the demonstration is to display the functionality of full by-wire control of the vehicle, without adding any actuators, in addition to there being very little modification to the vehicle.
AutonomouStuff was proud to present their automated Lincoln MKZ demo vehicle at AutoSens Detroit 2018. The MKZ has the Nvidia Drive PX running the Nvidia DriveWorks software stack to use a live stream from a Sekonix LVDS camera to do object detection and classification in real time, using AI algorithms. Also integrated in the car is a Lumina industrial PC, running ROS and our AutonomuStuff Lidar Object Processing software stack, utilizing RAW data from a Velodyne VPL-16 to do 360 degree, real-time object detection.
VSI also gave attendees the chance to ride on the local roads surrounding our demo area in their Tesla Model S AP2 research car. During this demo VSI discussed the OTA activities of this car and new autopilot features.
