At Uber ATG we’ve been working diligently to make this future a reality. We have collected millions of miles of autonomous driving data and have completed tens of thousands of passenger trips in multiple cities in the US. So, what’s the state of self-driving cars today?<br><br>This talk will explore several practical challenges in bridging the gap between the current state of the technology and viable self-driving cars of the future. We will discuss several example challenges in perception, motion prediction, planning, and control that we are solving at Uber ATG, challenges we believe must be addressed before self-driving cars become a reality.<br><br>Matching at Uber<br>Vishnu Sundaresan, Sr. Software Engineer, Uber Marketplace<br><br>The Marketplace Matching team will give an intro on its architecture and formation of the matching problem, followed by a peek into two new products that are aimed to put more riders into the same car.
