How Donuts Could Save Your Life: Learning from the Extremes of Automation

Paul Liu
Director, Automotive Architecture

Automating the driving function of vehicles holds the potential to transform the way people and things move through increasing safety, reducing cost and improving efficiency. Renovo is developing a data orchestration middleware for automated mobility on demand services that will realize these benefits. Motorsport has historically been a laboratory for vehicle performance experimentation and development. Pushing vehicle automation technology to extremes is the emerging equivalent to motorsport’s legacy of stress-tested components, just with algorithms and control strategies. Paul Liu, Director of Automotive Architecture at Renovo, will talk about the importance of using these extreme environments as a development lab. Renovo has been working with Stanford University on the Multiple Actuator Research Test bed for Yaw control (MARTY) program since 2014. MARTY is a self-drifting de Lorean that utilizes a dSPACE MABX for vehicle controls, an INU, and a robust middleware, telemetry service and electric powertrain provided by Renovo. He will share lessons from building and operating MARTY as a rolling research lab including control in unstable regimes, hardening APIs and data management.

MARTY is just one example of how pushing the limits of vehicle automation technology can be an important part of helping develop safe and reliable systems for use on the road. Donuts are just the beginning. Engineers from companies like Renovo will continue to risk losing their lunches in extreme automation scenarios to usher in the era of highly automated vehicles.
