California Partners for Advanced Transportation Technology, has been a leader in Intelligent Transportation Systems research since its founding in 1986.
Ford, Volkswagen and Toyota are funding artificial intelligence research at the University of California at Berkeley
Automakers didn't build the self-driving car: Google did. That's a big problem for them. Hoping to catch up, Ford, Toyota, and Volkswagen are betting on academics. Along with Nvidia, Samsung, Qualcomm and Panasonic, they're each giving $300,000 to the University of California at Berkeley to fund artificial intelligence research.
Starting in Summer 2015 California PATH plans a new initiative on advanced computer vision and machine learning for autonomous transportation. This new program will be led by Prof. Trevor Darrell, and will include other interested faculty in the EECS Dept. This effort will build on the decades of leadership PATH has had in the area of autonomous and semi-autonomous transportation systems involving computer vision.
