Image source: UberRide-sharing services are transforming urban mobility by providing timely and convenient transportation to anybody, anywhere, and anytime. Thanks to the global popularity of apps like Lyft and Uber, there are now hundreds of thousands of ride-share drivers, millions of users and billions in VC funding for apps and companies in the industry, despite the dominating companies being only 4-5 years old.Javier Alonso-Mora, Assistant Professor at Delft University of Technology, is working on autonomous mobile robots, with a special emphasis in multi-robot systems and robots that interact with other robots and humans. He and his department contribute novel methods and solutions in the areas of motion planning and multi-robot control, moving towards the smart cities of the future where these technologies and methods can be applied in self-driving cars, automated factories, aerial vehicles and human-swarm interaction.
|Javier Alonso-Mora will be speaking at the Machine Intelligence in Autonomous Vehicles Summit in Amsterdam this week, 28-29 June, taking place alongside the Machine Intelligence Summit. View more information here.|
