Several vehicles demonstrating autonomous technologies, such as sensors, processors and software will be available for delegates to take a ride on a track near 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 individual technologies and 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 both AutoSens ticket bundles.
- Date: May 12, 2020
- Time: 3pm – 5:30pm for AutoSens ticket holders (earlier access provided for Press and AutoSensLEARN attendees)
- 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 getting up close and personal to the technologies that make it all happen, and seeing the data outputs first-hand.
- You will get up close and personal with the technology, and gain unparalleled insight into the systems that make self-driving cars tick.
Demonstrators in 2019
Dataspeed Autonomous Driving with Cepton Lidar
Experience basic autonomous vehicle (AV) functionality by riding in Dataspeed’s Chrysler Pacifica outfitted with a Dataspeed by-wire kit, GPS/RTK, and forward facing Cepton 3D Lidars for object recognition. The Pacifica will interact with a second moving vehicle to show detection and avoidance capabilities of the Autoware/Dataspeed AV software. Riders will also have the opportunity to experience the concept of Tele-operation by steering the Pacifica from the rear seat.
Arbe’s Next Generation 4D Imaging Radar – Attendees will get a chance to see how Arbe’s radar tracks and separates objects in azimuth, elevation and velocity. A wide field of view combined with long-range detection enables Arbe’s radar to detect hundreds of objects in real time, differentiating threats from false alarms, tracking both moving and stationary objects in every weather and lighting conditions. Attendees can ride in a moving vehicle, with the radar in situ and will be able to see the resulting output from this solution, which is complemented by AI based SLAM and post processing algorithms.
VSI Advanced AV Development Vehicle – Using a GNSS/INS with RTK corrections the vehicle’s position will be found within an accuracy of up to 1 cm using the OxTS RT-3003. A path will be created using this position data. This path will then be repeated by the vehicle autonomously. On a visualizer passengers will see 3M’s pavement markings as seen by the vehicle’s sensors, which can be used to perform lane keeping. They will also see thermal pedestrian detection using FLIR’s thermal camera.
