Computer Scientist Peter Stone Wins Award for Autonomous Vehicle
AUSTIN, Texas—Peter Stone, associate professor of computer sciences at The University of Texas at Austin, was named one of eight winners of the Tech Innovations Award by the Austin Business Journal.

Stone received the award for his work on “Marvin,” an artificially intelligent, self-driving vehicle developed in conjunction with Austin Robot Technology (ART) for a Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) competition.

The vehicle competed in the semifinals of the DARPA Urban Challenge in 2007 and placed in the top 20 of 35.

"The whole team from Austin Robot Technology and The University of Texas at Austin are honored to receive this award,” said Stone. “Now that we have an operational self-driving full-size car, we look forward to continuing our research and undergraduate education using the platform, as well as possible business opportunities in Austin."

The Tech Innovations Awards are given to individuals with the most innovative technology ideas in Central Texas. A complete list of winners will appear in the Friday, November 30, edition of the Austin Business Journal.
