We have prepared a special episode about two events coming from the Spanish Chapter of the ITS Society!
First, this chapter has organized a best ITS PhD and Master thesis award. We got to interview the PhD Awardee, professor David Vazquez. His thesis title was “Domain Adaptation of Virtual and Real Worlds for Pedestrian Detection”. Are you into computer vision and you bored of labelling objects in real world scenes? Well, these smart guys in the Barcelona have a very nice idea, using a Virtual World to train that detectors.
Additionally, this chapter has organized another talk within the IEEE ITS Society Distinguished Lecture Series. The Chapter president, Prof. Miguel Angel Sotelo, from University of Alcala invited and introduced professor Raul Rojas, from the Free University of Berlin. He came to talk about Autonomous Driving and his lab’s recent challenging and exciting experiment. They sent their automated prototype for a 2400Km journey in Mexico. We also have some very interesting comments from professor Rojas.
For those willing to jump straight to the Prof. Rojas’s interview, it starts at 19′:01″.
