In this talk I will present the Red Team's approach to completing the 2005 Grand Challenge. The talk will cover both technical details of our approach, related issues in perception and planning at high speeds, and describe the process by which we achieved reliable and robust performance.
Dr. Chris Urmson researches and develops autonomous navigation algorithms, architectures and systems. He is the Director of Technology for the Urban Challenge at Carnegie Mellon University and was a principal architect of the Red Team and Red Team Too Grand Challenge entries. He has been part of developing numerous field robots and has tested them in places as exotic as the Arctic Circle, the Atacama Desert and Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. He earned his PhD in 2005 from CMU and his B.Sc. in Computer Engineering from the University of Manitoba in 1998.
