For self-driving cars and other smart transport to be successfully integrated in the real-world, the safety of passengers and pedestrians must be ensured. In the world of intelligent machines, perception answers the question: what is around me? This situational awareness is paramount for safe operation of autonomous vehicles in real-world environments.

Scientists working in this field point to robotic perception as fundamental in equipping machines with a semantic understanding of the world, so that they can reliably identify objects and make informed predictions and actions. Michael Milford, Associate Professor at Queensland University of Technology (QUT), is a leading robotics researcher working to improve perception and more in autonomous vehicles, conducting his research at the intersection of robotics, neuroscience and computer vision.
