Outstanding Doctorate Thesis within the KIT Research Field "Systems and Processes"

Andreas Geiger has been awarded the KIT Doctoral Award

In his PhD thesis, Andreas Geiger has developed algorithms for 3D scene perception in autonomous vehicles which can help to improve traffic safety, reduce traffic jams and enable car rides for elderly or visually impaired people. His approach combines visual recognition using stereo cameras with probabilistic models which are able to determine the location and orientation of roads, lanes and other traffic participants.
