How does autonomous driving work? How do cars perceive the world around them and make timely decisions about where to go? How much progress has the autonomous driving industry made and what is the future of autonomous driving? Come and learn about autonomous driving technology, and by the end of the talk you will have a better understanding of the industry, and maybe have your own prediction of the future of autonomous driving.

Professor Grace Gao, PhD ’08, leads the Stanford Navigation and Autonomous Vehicles Laboratory. Her research focuses on robust and safe positioning, navigation and timing technologies, with applications to manned and unmanned aerial vehicles, autonomous driving cars, as well as space robotics. Professor Gao has authored over 160 publications in the field. She has won a number of awards, including Best Paper/Presentation of the Session Awards 17 times at ION GNSS+ conferences, the NSF CAREER Award, the Institute of Navigation Early Achievement Award and the RTCA William E. Jackson Award.
