Robot Navigation: Satellites, Sensors & Simulation
SAN FRANCISCO, October 31, 2023
In this PAVE panel, two Autonomous Vehicle CEOs will join us to explore the world of robot navigation.
Aaron Nathan, CEO, CTO and Founder of Point One Navigation, and Dr. Anuja Sonalker, CEO and Founder of STEER, will explain how the pieces of the AV stack work together, create redundancies, and provide AVs with a full-picture view of the world.
Join us for this conversation with these two seasoned AV leaders – and send us all of your questions about robot navigation!
Humans use senses to navigate the world – through sight, smell, sound, taste, and touch, we explore our surroundings, and these senses work together to help us create a complete picture of our environment.
How does an autonomous vehicle create a picture of the world? Similar to a human, an AV uses its sensors to perceive its surroundings, and based on that data, it makes decisions. While each sensor serves an important function, the collective input – or sensor fusion – is what makes the system work safely.

PAVE is a coalition of industry, nonprofits, and academics with one goal: To bring the conversation about automated vehicles (AVs) to the public so everyone can play a role in shaping our future. PAVE’s goal is purely educational—we don’t advocate for a particular technology or specific public policies. Our members believe that we can only achieve the potential benefits of driverless technology if the public and policymakers know the honest facts. PAVE wants to raise public awareness of both what is on the roads today and what is possible for the future. More about PAVE at https://pavecampaign.org/about/
