Over the course of three years, Uber’s self-driving vehicles have driven over 2 million miles and have completed over 50,000 passenger trips in Pittsburgh and Phoenix. Many of you might be curious as to how we built a fleet of self-driving vehicles capable of driving autonomously in varying terrains and conditions. In this talk, Matt will break down the software components that come together to make a self-driving Uber drive itself. You’ll also learn about how we thoroughly test new software before it is deployed to the fleet.

Speaker: Matt Ranney

Sr. Staff Engineer @UberATG

Matt works on Uber ATG's simulation systems to exercise autonomy software before it gets onto the road. Before that, he worked on distributed systems, architecture, and performance at Uber.
