Joint Workshops on IV2020:

From Benchmarking Behavior Prediction to Socially Compatible Behavior Generation in Autonomous Driving

Workshop Description

In the past decade, extensive progress has been made in autonomous driving in both academia and industries, and more and more autonomous vehicles are deployed to drive on public roads. To negotiate its position in a space that is occupied by humans (e.g., human drivers, pedestrians), an autonomous vehicle need to effectively predict the human behaviors and generate socially compliant actions to enable efficient and safe interaction with humans. The performances of behavior perdiction and behavior generation are mutually influenced in a sense that an accurate prediction will help to generate better decisions and planning strategies, and an robust behavior generation strategy can compensate for uncertainties in the prediction results. This joint workshop aims to address fundamental problems in these two topics, and discuss in particular the connection/mutual influence between them.

The joint workshop has two themes:

1) Performance evaluation of prediction algorithms, particularly in the presence of specific planning algorithms;

2) Behavior generation algorithms under uncertainties from prediction.
