ADAS Software Development: Understanding the
Role of Data in Building Perception Systems

In this 12-minute podcast, we sit down with Dominique Plourde, Manager of data acquisition at LeddarTech to understand why data is a prerequisite to building a low-level sensor fusion and perception software, the challenges, and how it enables expanded operational design domains. We chat with her to understand best practices in data acquisition and why exposure to varied environments during acquisition is crucial to developing robust perception solutions. 

Key Points:

  • How data enables building machine learning models used for perception systems
  • The different types of data
  • Explanation of the workflow: From sensor integration to validating perception software stacks
  • How data enables expanded operation design domain
  • Data acquisition standards for perception systems
  • Why does it mean when a company announces that they have collected X thousand miles of data
