Lecture title: “Intelligent Transportation Systems: from environment understanding to autonomous vehicles”.
Abstract: This lecture presents actual methodologies that allow intelligent vehicles understand the environment and cope with the interaction with new scenarios autonomously. The complex multidisciplinary scenarios of the real world will be analysed in detail by artificial intelligence point of view, where the truthfulness in intelligent vehicles is mandatory to reach new frontiers of acceptance. Moreover, the development of complex multivariable algorithms for unknown scenarios will establish the basis of workable solutions based on new approaches that refine overall sensor data and expert knowledge to accomplish a safe decision-making, better than human do. Present methodology for intelligent vehicles focus on fusion of data and knowledge, using disciplines such as deep learning algorithms, leading to new disciplines to reach the objectives of autonomous vehicles.
David Martín, graduated in Industrial Physics (Automation) from the National University of Distance Education (UNED, 2002) and Ph.D. degree in Computer Science from the Spanish Council for Scientific Research (CSIC) and UNED, Spain 2008. He was Ph.D. student at CSIC from 2002 to 2006. He was fellow at the European Organization for Nuclear Research (CERN, Switzerland, 2006-2008) and Post-Doc researcher in Robotics at CSIC (2008-2011). Currently, he is Assistant Professor and Senior researcher at Carlos III University of Madrid and member of the Intelligent Systems Lab since 2011. His research interests are Real-time Perception Systems, Computer Vision, Sensor Fusion, Intelligent Transportation Systems, Advanced Driver Assistance Systems, Autonomous Ground Vehicles, Unmanned Aerial Vehicles, and Vehicle Positioning and Navigation. He participates in several industrial research projects, and is reviewer of prestigious Journals, and member of the Spanish Computer Vision Group, among others. In 2014, he was awarded with the VII Barreiros Foundation award to the best research in the automotive field. In 2015, the IEEE Society has awarded Dr. Martín as the best reviewer of the 18th IEEE International Conference on Intelligent Transportation Systems.
