CARLA simulator and Crowd Counting at Maker Faire BCN 2018

CVC was present at this year’s Maker Faire Barcelona 2018 last weekend, 16th and 17th of June at the Italian Pavillion of the Fira de Barcelona.

More than 10.000 people visited this year’s Maker Faire in Barcelona, an expo dedicated to Open Source projects and makers that gathers a rapidly increasing community within the metropolitan area of Barcelona. CVC, along with other research centers, had a space in which it showcased its simulator for autonomous driving, CARLA, and its crowd counting technology, both technologies winning three Maker of Merit awards. PhD student Edgar Riba gave a talk on OpenCV, computer vision and deep learning, and how to embed computer vision in applications for all the maker community.
