The Perception Division is at the forefront of our autonomous vehicle. Comprising a multidisciplinary group of talented engineers and computer scientists, the team's primary focus is to develop, test, and implement perception systems that enable autonomous vehicles to navigate the complexities of the real world with unparalleled precision and safety. The mission of the Perception Division is to imbue autonomous vehicles with the gift of sight. By harnessing the power of cutting-edge cameras and LiDAR sensors, the team creates a symbiotic relationship between hardware and software that allows vehicles to perceive their surroundings in real-time. This technology is essential for making informed decisions, predicting potential obstacles, and ultimately ensuring the safety of passengers and pedestrians alike. Examples of Perception projects are: Object Detection, Lane Detection, Sign Classification, Traffic Light Classification, Object Tracking, LiDAR Object Detection, LiDAR-Camera Calibration, Dataset creation and management, Optimization.
The Hardware Division is the core of our autonomous vehicle. Comprising mainly of Mechanical, Electrical, and Mechatronics Engineers, the Hardware Division is concerned with creating the systems that allow our software stack to interact with the real world. The mission of the Hardware Division is to ensure safe, intelligent implementation of an AV. This is essential for stakeholders in the environment, and all downstream software systems. Examples of Hardware projects are: Sensor Mount, Trunk Mount, CAN harness, Start-up, Human-Machine-Interface, Blue Light Circuit, Hardware Synchronization.
The Systems Division is the driving force behind the harmonious integration, and simulation of the intricate components in the AV. Comprising a dynamic team of skilled engineers and computer scientists, this division plays a pivotal role in ensuring that the complex autonomous systems work in unison to deliver safe, efficient, and intelligent mobility solutions. The Systems Division's mission is to bridge the gap between various subsystems, transforming them into a cohesive and functional whole. Through the integration of Controller Area Network (CAN) systems, Robot Operating System (ROS2) integration, and simulation of the autonomous vehicle system, the division ensures that the sum of parts results in a reliable autonomous driving experience. Examples of Systems projects are: ROS and CAN integration, Heads-up-display, Simulink/CARLA simulation.
The Autonomy Division serves as the brain of the AV system, responsible for the decision-making and actuation of the AV system. Comprising a team of engineers and computer scientists, this division's core focus is on developing cutting-edge control systems and motion planning algorithms that empower vehicles to navigate the intricacies of the road with unparalleled accuracy and safety. The Autonomy Division's mission is to infuse vehicles with the ability to think and act autonomously. By designing advanced control strategies and motion planning algorithms, the division ensures that autonomous vehicles can make split-second decisions, manoeuvre through complex scenarios, and navigate with an astute understanding of their environment.
The Operations Division serves as the orchestrator of excellence. Comprising a versatile team of professionals, this division plays a pivotal role in ensuring seamless logistics, effective event planning, strategic social media engagement, polished website management, comprehensive report writing, prudent financial management, and more. The Operations Division's mission is to create a well-rounded ecosystem that complements the technological prowess of autonomous vehicles. By managing logistics, organizing events, maintaining an engaging online presence, producing insightful reports, and handling financial matters, the division ensures that every aspect of the project operates harmoniously and effectively.
