Welcome To My Blog on Self Driving Car Safety

Welcome!

This blog primarily covers Autonomous Vehicle safety, often known as self-driving car safety.

I'm splitting this blog off from my Better Embedded Software blog to reflect my increased emphasis on Autonomous Vehicle (AV) safety.

In my professor gig, these days my main research is on AV stress testing (the ASTAA and RIOT projects at CMU NREC).

I'm also very active in the startup company that I co-founded with Mike Wagner: Edge Case Research LLC. Over the past couple years we have emphasized both stress testing and creating safety cases for AVs.

Comments are moderated. I read them all.  Comments that ask a question typically get approved, although I can't offer specific advise on your particular system this way.  Additional thoughts and responsible contrary views are also typically approved.

While I appreciate the "nice blog" type posts, I typically don't approve them for posting.  (So many of them are comment spam!)  If you really want to be sure I get that type of message just e-mail it to me directly, and it will be appreciated.  If you'd like it to be posted as a comment on the blog let me know.  Send to:  BlogComments@koopman.us   

A few of the initial posts are duplicates from my other blog, but I'll be posting all my new AV content here.  I hope you enjoy the postings!

Object Detection Considerations for Autonomous Vehicles (OEDR -- part 1)

Object and Event Detection and Recognition (OEDR) involves having an autonomous vehicle detect and classify various types of objects so that...
