Cruise is sharing its data visualization tool with robotics geeks everywhere

Posted on
Cruise is sharing a software platform with roboticists that was initially created to give its own engineers a better understanding of the petabytes of data generated every month from its fleet of autonomous vehicles. The platform is a data visualization tool called Webviz, a web-based application aimed at anyone working in robotics, a field that includes autonomous vehicles. Researchers, students and engineers can now access the tool and get a visual insight into their data by dragging their robotics data into a ROS bag file.

Self-driving cars are almost too observant, taking in information from light-emitting LiDAR sensors, radar equipment, microphones, and cameras. But all the information a car gleans from the outside world still has to be wrangled to be useful.  Cruise's fleet of self-driving cars testing in San Francisco take in petabytes of data each month from its sensor suite on the road and in simulation, similar to other configurations other self-driving car companies have on autonomous vehicles.

To a certain degree, we're all visual learners: Research has shown that humans are instinctively drawn to things we find aesthetically pleasing because they're easier for our brains to process.  That's a very abbreviated version of modern philosophical and psychological notions of beauty, mind you, but you get the gist: If you're able to present information in a way that people find fun to look at, they tend to better understand it.  Read more...More about Big Data, Online Learning, Mashable Shopping, Udemy, and Tech
