Centre researcher Sourav Garg has claimed first place and $1500 in the SAGE Higher Degree Research Student Publication Prize for his article Semantic-geometric visual place recognition: a new perspective for reconciling opposing views, published in the International Journal of Robotics Research.
Mr Garg, a PhD researcher, was one of the key researchers on a project led by Centre Chief Investigator Michael Milford to take an Artificial Intelligence (AI) system on a road-trip of south-east Queensland to ensure the autonomous cars of the future will be smart enough to handle tough Australian road conditions.
He has developed a visual recognition system for autonomous cars that mimics a human driver’s ability to recognise locations when approaching from a different direction and under radically different environmental conditions.
