This session will look at the work of the Academy of Robotics in addressing the challenge of understanding the many shades of grey in autonomous navigation on unmarked roads. William will explain how they have approached the challenge of seeing not just the markings that are actually present on the roads, but also the markings that should be there. How designing for a single-minded focus on last-mile delivery has in fact opened up a variety of new industrial use-cases including building predictive models for road surface analysis and hazard prevention.
