3rd International Workshop on "Data Driven Intelligent Vehicle Applications"

DDIVA 2021

     July 11, 2021

A workshop in conjunction with IV 2021 in Nagoya, Japan

 

Home

Recent advancements in the processing units have improved our ability to construct a variety of archi- tectures for understanding the surroundings of vehicles. Deep learning methods have been developed for geometric and semantic understanding of environments in driving scenarios aim to increase the suc- cess of full-autonomy with the cost of large amount of data.

Recently proposed methods challenge this dependency by pre-processing the data, enhancing, collecting and labeling it intelligently. In addition, the dependency on data can be relieved by generating synthetic data, which alleviates this need with the cost-free annotations, as well as using the test drive data from the sensors and hardware mounted on a vehicle. Nevertheless, state of the driver and passengers inside the cabin have been also of a big importance for the traffic safety and the holistic spatio-temporal perception of the environment.

Aim of this workshop is to form a platform for exchanging ideas and linking the scientific community active in intelligent vehicles domain. This workshop will provide an opportunity to discuss applications and their data-dependent demands for spatio-temporal understanding of the surroundings as well as inside of a vehicle while addressing how the data can be exploited to improve results instead of changing proposed architectures.

Title of the talk Using the CARLA simulator for AV test and validation
Abstract

Automated vehicles (AVs) are gaining increasing interest and their development is making great progress. However, assuring safe driving operation under all possible road and environment conditions is still an open challenge. In this regard, vehicle simulation is seen as a major corner stone for test and validation. Recorded real world challenges can be rebuild in simulation (e.g. NHTSA pre-crash scenarios) and in addition artificial corner cases can be added on top. Those can then be utilized to test the complex software stack in various configurations to find possible safety or availability issues. For example, the same situation can be tested with different settings of the planning modules (driving policy) or road conditions to ensure that all possibilities result in safe driving. In this talk, we will present how the CARLA vehicle simulator in combination with an open source scenario editor can be used to re-create traffic scenarios, play those under various operating conditions and by that means make one step towards safe autonomous driving.

Call For Papers

Spatio-temporal data is crucial to improve accuracy in deep learning applications. In this workshop, we mainly focus on data and deep learning, since data enables through applications to infer more information about environment for autonomous driving. This workshop will provide an opportunity to discuss applications and their data-dependent demands for understanding the environment of a vehicle while addressing how the data can be exploited to improve results instead of changing proposed architectures. The ambition of this full-day DDIVA workshop is to form a platform for exchanging ideas and linking the scientific community active in intelligent vehicles domain.

To this end we welcome contributions with a strong focus on (but not limited to) the following topics within Data Driven Intelligent Vehicle Applications:

 

Data Perspective:

  • Synthetic Data Generation
  • Sensor Data Synchronization
  • Sequential Data Processing
  • Data Labeling
  • Data Visualization
  • Data Discovery
     

Application Perspective:

  • Visual Scene Understanding
  • Large Scale Scene Reconstruction
  • Semantic Segmentation
  • Object Detection
  • In Cabin Understanding
  • Emotion Recognition
