Learn how the open source community is coming together to support universities exploring high speed autonomous driving via racing including F1TENTH and Indy Autonomous Challenge #iac2021. Joe and Tom discuss the technical challenges this presents and how the open source community is rallying to help universities with this open source autonomous driving stack they can all use.
Autonomous driving research involves cooperation between engineers across fields, from control systems to machine learning. However, obtaining required programming skills to develop autonomous driving systems takes a lot of time and energy. We think that anyone with valuable knowledge should be able to contribute to development of autonomous driving technologies without going through struggles of software development.
