Lyft’s Approach to Developing Self-Driving Technology

Kumar Chellapilla and Jonny Dyer

Lyft’s mission is to improve people’s lives with the world’s best transportation. Self driving vehicles have the potential to deliver unprecedented improvements to safety and quality, at a price and convenience that challenges traditional models of vehicle ownership. While the transportation industry is deep in the process of developing fully autonomous vehicles, many technical, regulatory and societal challenges remain. As a relatively late entrant, Level 5 is taking leveraging the second mover advantage as well as some key advantages in development and deployment that our existing rideshare business offers.

In this talk we will cover the why and how of Lyft's Autonomy program including goals, strategy and implementation of our SDS and the supporting infrastructure in both hardware and software. We’ll present the core problems in self-driving and how recent advances in computer vision, robotics, and machine learning are powering this revolution.
