In this presentation, the latest advancements in Vehicle-to-Vehicle (V2V) and Vehicle-to-Everything (V2X) cooperative perception aimed at enhancing the safety and efficiency of automated transportation systems will be explored. The presentation will commence with an overview of OpenCDA, an open-source ecosystem tailored to meet the diverse requirements of various communities engaged in cooperative driving automation (CDA) research. This ecosystem establishes a bridge, ensuring seamless integration of development and testing pipelines, and having fostered a wealth of cooperative perception research in the field. Subsequently, four state-of-the-art algorithms developed for V2V and V2X cooperative perception will be introduced. The OPV2V paper offers an open benchmark dataset and fusion pipeline for perception utilizing V2V communication, while V2X-ViT presents a robust cooperative perception framework with V2X communication employing an innovative vision Transformer. V2XP-ASG generates adversarial scenes for V2X perception, and HM-ViT introduces a unified multi-agent hetero-modal cooperative perception framework. Lastly, the presentation will feature V2V4Real, which supplies an extensive real-world dataset and benchmark for V2V cooperative perception, alongside ongoing V2X real-world datasets and experiments taking place at the UCLA smart intersection.
