October 27 – 30, 2019
The IEEE Intelligent Transportation Systems Conference (ITSC) 2019 was held in Auckland New Zealand, from 27th October – 30th October 2019. CMU National Robotics Engineering Center’s Robotics Engineer Suryansh Saxena was invited to present his published work; titled “Multi-agent Sensor Fusion for Connected & Autonomous Vehicles to Enhance Navigation Safety” which introduced a novel framework for distributed multi-agents to share time-critical information about their immediate surrounding, and isolate false negatives in their local interpretation using the gained knowledge.
The work presented was well received by the research peer community. The feedback gained highlighted the usefulness of the proposed methodologies especially the statistical framework and simulation environment that demonstrated the efficacy in improving navigation safety. Suryansh was requested to make the source-code public so that other researchers in the same-domain can utilize the demonstrated architecture to further the state-of-the-art. The feedback received also urged him to enhance this framework to account for various open-data sources.
During his time at the ITSC conference, Suryansh attended several presentations in domains including self-driving vehicles safety, collaborative-autonomy, infrastructure-based-sensing to enhance mobility, human-computer interaction, updates to traffic-policies for incorporating mixed traffic streams and connected vehicle environments, etc.
