The primary objective of RAL is to establish a world-class industrial research facility that focuses on advancing state-of-the-art robotics and autonomous driving.
We strongly believe that the most significant advancement comes from the cross-pollination of different areas. As such, we aim to build a multi-disciplinary team that combines expertise in machine learning, computer vision, robotics, graphics, and simulation to study holistic solutions. In addition, we aim to bridge the gap between academic research and industrial applications. By establishing and maintaining close relationships with leading universities and using Baidu's well-established engineering talent, we strive to be the first to bring research lab results, either internally or externally, to market.
RAL team has published research papers at Science Robotics, ICCV, CVPR, ECCV, NeurIPS, AAAI, TAMPI, TVCG, IJRR, ICRA and IROS. The team is also developing novel industry and service robotics systems and applications
