Boss is an autonomous vehicle that uses on-board sensors (global positioning system, lasers, radars, and cameras) to track other vehicles, detect static obstacles, and localize itself relative to a road model. A three-layer planning system combines mission, behav-ioral, and motion planning to drive in urban environments. The mission planning layer considers(More)
— For many people, driving is a routine activity where people drive to the same destinations using the same routes on a regular basis. Many drivers, for example, will drive to and from work along a small set of routes, at about the same time every day of the working week. Similarly, although a person may shop on different days or at different times, they(More)

Existing learning networks and architec-tures are not suited to handle autonomous driving or driver assistance in complex, human-designed environments such as city driving. Developmental learning techniques for such " vehicle-based " robots will be necessary. Motivated by neuroscience, we propose a system with a design based on the criteria of autonomous,(More)
Executive Summary The Urban Challenge represents a technological leap beyond the previous Grand Challenges. The challenge encompasses three primary behaviors: driving on roads, handling intersections and maneuvering in zones. In implementing urban driving we have decomposed the problem into five components. Mission Planning determines an efficient route(More)
