Guiding the Next Generation of Research

We are at the forefront of research on deep automotive perception through the integration of two very important technologies: vision and vehicles.

Our Mission

We seek to merge deep learning with automotive perception and bring computer vision technology to the forefront.

ABOUT DEEPDRIVE

We're driving the future of automotive perception.

The BDD Industry Consortium investigates state-of-the-art technologies in computer vision and machine learning for automotive applications. Our multi-disciplinary center is housed at the University of California, Berkeley and is led by Professor Trevor Darrell, Faculty Director of PATH, with Professor Ken Goldberg and Thomas West serving as associate directors. The BDD consortium partners with private industry sponsors and brings faculty and researchers together from multiple departments and centers to develop new and emerging technologies with real-world applications in the automotive industry. Research is proposed by UC Berkeley faculty and approved by a BDD advisory board made up of faculty and sponsor representatives. Although dramatic progress has been made in the field of computer visioning, many of these technologies and theories have yet to carry over to the automotive field. Thus, the need and driving force behind the Berkeley DeepDrive Center.
