CARLA’s mission is to guarantee the security of the future autonomous vehicles in any kind of situation.
The Computer Vision Center (CVC) and Intel Intelligent Systems Lab have been awarded with the Public-Private Partnership in R+I National Prize, as they developed an innovative technology able to simulate autonomous driving.
Its name is CARLA, and it has been designed to train and validate autonomous driving systems. It’s a great tool for all the investigators and companies who work in this study area. The project has ben lead by Dr. German Ros, Autonomous Agents Lab Director at Intel, and Dr. Antonio M. Lopex, CVC/UAB investigator and ICREA professor.
CARLA was made to answer the difficulty of score the visual information. The open digital resources that this technology provides allow to simulate many driving scenarios. Although, it’s able to take account of the light and weather conditions, to generate a bigger diversity of maps. That’s an effective way for cars to learn how to react to several conditions in an autonomous way.
