We're driving the future of automotive perception.
The BDD Industry Consortium investigates state-of-the-art technologies in computer vision and machine learning for automotive applications. Our multi-disciplinary center is housed at the University of California, Berkeley and is directed by Professor Trevor Darrell, Faculty Director of PATH, Professor Kurt Keutzer and Dr. Ching-Yao Chan. The BDD consortium partners with private industry sponsors and brings faculty and researchers together from multiple departments and centers to develop new and emerging technologies with real-world applications in the automotive industry. Research is proposed by UC Berkeley faculty and approved by a BDD advisory board made up of faculty and sponsor representatives. Although dramatic progress has been made in the field of computer visioning, many of these technologies and theories have yet to carry over to the automotive field. Thus, the need and driving force behind the Berkeley DeepDrive Center.
