Learning from good drivers

Sandor presents his research into driver experience based decision-making autonomous cars (DEBDAC).

How will autonomous vehicles drive on the roads of today? How can we ensure that they will drive safely alongside humans?

Automated technology in cars could help to prevent accidents and reduce congestion and emissions in cities. However, automated driving is highly complex and requires systems to respond to a wide range of real-world driving situations.

Professor Sandor Veres has been working with telematics company The Floow LTD to develop automated vehicles that can learn from the behaviour of human drivers.

In this video, we’ll first hear from Dr Sam Chapman, Chief Innovation Officer at the Floow, as he explains the types of information that can be gathered from drivers and how this can be used to educate drivers, and improve infrastructure and town planning.

We’ll then hear from Sandor about how this data is helping the University in their current research project, designing systems that use driver experienced based decision-making (DEBDAC).
