  •  NEWS    Rien Quirynen to give an invited talk at the University of California Santa Cruz
  • Date:

    November 14, 2022

  • Where:

    Zoom

  • Description:

    Rien Quirynen will give an invited talk at the Electrical and Computer Engineering Department, University of California Santa Cruz on "Real-time Motion Planning and Predictive Control by Mixed-integer Programming for Autonomous Vehicles". The talk will present recent work on a tailored branch-and-bound method for real-time motion planning and decision making on embedded processing units, and recent results for two applications related to automated driving and traffic control.
