Getting to the point – Deep Learning for Environment Perception based on LiDAR Point Clouds

- Dr. Florian Piewak (Mercedes-Benz AG – R&D)

Our Meetup series for interested parties presents and discusses current, practice-relevant research topics in the field of future mobility.

Machine learning methods have recently shown how conventional algorithms can be efficiently improved and extended. Especially in the field of automated and autonomous driving, data-based learning methods are an elementary component for safe and robust operation under different environmental conditions. In addition to camera and RaDAR sensors, laser-based LiDAR sensors are increasingly being used to enable precise three-dimensional environment recognition.

At the Meetup, we will dive into current research activities in the field of LiDAR-based environment detection and discuss future trends of data-driven learning methods.
