Waterloo Autonomoose team delivers a successful autonomous car demonstration at Consumer Electronics Show (CES) 2017

Monday, January 9, 2017

Waterloo Intelligent Systems Engineering (WISE) Lab (formerly Generative Software Development (GSD) Lab) members (from Autonomoose Team) were involved in the successful Renesas autonomous car demonstration at Consumer Electronics Show (CES) 2017 in Las Vegas, NV, USA.

  • Renesas provided the Lincoln MKZ car and their computing hardware (RDrive and R-Car chips).
  • Autonomoose Team created the autonomy stack software.
  • BlackBerry QNX AVIC provided the QNX real-time operating system.

The demonstration ran every 15 minutes for four straight days (Jan 05-08) for approximately nine hours per day. The car was driving a few scenarios on a closed loop track on CES parking lot, including interaction with another car via V2V radio, interaction with a traffic light via V2I radio, handling stop sign and yielding to oncoming traffic. The implementation featured triple hardware redundancy for control and the demo showcased fail-operation after simulated failure of one control node (node went silent) as well as fail-operation after a simulated cyber security attack which injected spurious control messages.
