Stage A

The Open Source Approach to Enabling Vehicle Autonomy, from Programming to Simulation and Back

Day 1 | 5:00pm - 6:15pm
Executive Panel
Stage A

Discussion on Autonomous Driving

Dr. Nate Koenig
CTO, Open Robotics

Presentation description:

Open-source software plays a vital role in autonomous system development. This talk describes the open-source philosophy at Open Robotics, and how two key software platforms, Gazebo and ROS, can enable vehicle autonomy.

Curriculum Vitae:

Nate Koenig is the CTO of Open Robotics. Prior to that, he was a research engineer at Willow Garage, where he conducted human-robot interaction (HRI) studies, and led the development of Gazebo, an open-source robot simulator. Nate obtained a Ph.D. and a master’s degree in computer science from the University of Southern California in 2012 and 2003, respectively, and a bachelor’s degree in computer science from Rochester Institute of Technology in 2001.
