In this episode, we talk about how Toyota and Stanford are collaborating to utilize AI for drifting controls and the efforts behind a team at TUM which has resulted in an autonomous race car performing at the capacity of an amateur F1 driver.

Podcast: The Autonomous Race & Drift Cars Of The Not So Distant Future

EPFL scientists have built a compact waveguide amplifier by successfully incorporating rare-earth ions into integrated photonic circuits. The device produces record output power compared to commercial fiber amplifiers, a first in the development of integrated photonics over the last decades.

Boosting light power revolutionizes communications and autopilot

A team of scientists at Duke University have taken a technology originally developed for biological imaging, particularly of the eye, and applied it to LiDAR — considerably boosting the performance of the resulting depth-sensing system.

Ophthalmology for robots could usher in video-rate, high-precision solid-state depth-sensing LiDAR

A new approach that allows standard image sensors to see light in three dimensions using a novel design for a single-frequency free space intensity modulator.

A novel class of LiDAR spoofing attacks on autonomous vehicles– the frustum attack, was then later validated using an existing hardware setup.

Security analysis of camera-LiDAR perception for autonomous vehicle system

Designed to address the problem of accurately detecting objects — like other vehicles and pedestrians — at distance, Google and Waymo's 4D-Net offers a novel and generalizable approach to sensor fusion with some impressive results.

4D-Net boosts autonomous driving vision capabilities by fusing point cloud, camera, and time data

A team at the Technical University of Munich (TUM) has developed software which lets race cars compete in motor sports without a driver. The TUM Autonomous Motorsport Team was able to take 1st and 2nd place at the Autonomous Challenges in Indianapolis and most recently at the CES in Las Vegas.

"Formula 1 could see driverless race cars as early as 2025"

Visible-spectrum, compact, power-efficient, low-loss phase modulator is a breakthrough in integrated photonics; the device will improve LIDAR for remote sensing, AR/VR goggles, quantum information processing chips, implantable optogenetic probes, and more.

New Device Modulates Visible Light - Without Dimming It - with the Smallest Footprint and Lowest Power Consumption

Researchers have developed the first LiDAR-based augmented reality head-up display for use in vehicles. Tests on a prototype version of the technology suggest that it could improve road safety by ‘seeing through’ objects to alert of potential hazards without distracting the driver.

3D holographic head-up display could improve road safety

A multidisciplinary Swiss team explored the future of urban digitization in its theoretical, technical, and legal dimensions by modeling the city of Sion with an innovative ScanVan.
