FURI | Summer 2020
Object Detection With Sensor Fusion and Embedded SystemsAs the technology available for autonomous vehicles advances, car manufacturers are looking for ways to implement Advanced Driver-Assistance Systems (ADAS) economically. Both in terms of cost and energy used. This is the motivation that leads into investigating embedded systems to create an ADAS using sensor fusion and deep learning. A system using a NVIDIA Jetson TK1, a Basler camera, a LeddarTech lidar sensor, and an implementation of the YOLOv3 algorithm was created to simulate an ADAS. While its power consumption is low, more sophisticated boards must be investigated to run detection algorithms at real time.

Yoga Mahartayasa was awarded a W. L. Gore & Associates sponsorship for his Fall 2020 FURI project. W. L. Gore & Associates is a uniquely creative, product leadership enterprise that has served a variety of global markets for 60 years, and provides innovative solutions that its associates stand behind. Gore established funds to support undergraduate students in the Fulton Undergraduate Research Initiative program and values student-driven research and developing relationships with students in the program.
“Yoga is highly motivated and self-driven in the pursuit of research. During the summer, he has never stopped research, and updated his progress weekly. In addition, in the summer he also helped other graduated students on their research, and we submitted a manuscript to an international conference, with Yoga as co-author. I’m really impressed by his achievements.”
