Ninja Car. Simulation-in-the-loop planning and control. Rigorous justification for model-predictive control with high-order nonlinear plant models and optimization. Real-time perception algorithms for localization with various mapping representations (e.g. sign distance function fusion).

 

Camera calibration tools. There are a bunch of ARPG utilities that deal with supporting perception development. One of the tools to which I have contributed the most is Calibu, a library that calibrates arbitrary rigs of cameras and IMUs for production by estimating extrinsics (e.g. positions of sensors) as well as intrinsics (biases, generic parameters).
