In this episode, Audrow Nash interviews Christoph Stiller from the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology. Stiller speaks about the sensors required for various level of autonomous driving, as well as the ethics of autonomous cars, and his experience in the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) Grand Challenge.

In this video lecture Fabio Bonsignorio talks about novel ideas that might just lead to a paradigm change robotics that will allow us to apply robot systems to natural environments, and not just factories where systems are operated and controlled by professionals.
