The project offers potential solutions to the challenge of accurately estimating the position of vehicles in underground mining environments.
QUT researchers who took an Artificial Intelligence (AI) system on a south-east Queensland road trip have identified the key role high-definition annotated maps will likely play in autonomous driving on Australian roads.
We're solving complex developmental problems related to autonomous driving, to help deliver game-changing autonomous vehicle technologies in Australia.

State-of-the-art Autonomous Vehicles (AVs) are trained for specific, well-structured environments and, in general, would fail to operate in unstructured or novel settings. This project aims at developing next-generation AVs, capable of learning and on-the-fly adaptation to environmental novelty.
