Today, there are two major paradigms for vision-based autonomous driving systems: mediated perception approaches that parse an entire scene to make a driving decision, and behavior reflex approaches that directly map an input image to a driving action by a regressor. In this paper, we propose a third paradigm: a direct perception approach to estimate the(More)
This paper provides a case study of the effect of labor relations on product quality. We consider whether a long, contentious strike and the hiring of replacement workers at Bridgestone/Firestone’s Decatur plant in the mid-1990s contributed to the production of defective tires. Using several independent data sources, and looking before and after the strike(More)
In the past decade, significant progress has been made in autonomous driving, and many novel computer vision methods have been proposed for vision-based autonomous driving. To date, most of these systems can be categorized into two major paradigms: mediated perception approaches and behavior reflex approaches. Mediated perception approaches [7] involve(More)
This paper describes Princeton University’s approach to the 2005 DARPA Grand Challenge, an off-road race for fully autonomous ground vehicles. The system, Prospect Eleven, takes a simple approach to address the problems posed by the Grand Challenge, including obstacle detection, path planning, and extended operation in harsh environments. Obstacles are(More)
Routing in dynamic and stochastic network is to provide adaptive ‘best’ route guidance where the link/route travel times are modelled as a time-varying stochastic process. Typical approaches for routing when travel times are both dynamic and stochastic assume that link travel times are independent and travellers are seeking for expected shortest paths. It(More)
