About Me


I’m Chien-Chih Ho (Ernie Ho), the master student at Carnegie Mellon University, School of Computer Science, Robotics Institute. Previously, I studied at Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) Electrical Engineering and Computer Science (EECS) as a special student.

My interests lie in Artificial Intelligence, Machine Learning, Deep Learning, Reinforcement Learning, Computer Vision, and Autonomous Vehicles!

I loved building, hacking and inventing stuff!

Here is the short preview of what I’ve built before!

Autonomous Mini Racecar


My classmates and I made the mini racecar run through the MIT tunnel autonomously.

You can see the details in the following links:

Racecar Part 1: How to build the autonomous car?

Racecar Part 2: Set up the environment

Racecar Part 3: Reflexive Control

Racecar Part 4: Computer Vision

Racecar Part 5: Mapping and Localization

Racecar Part 6: Motion Planning

Racecar Part 7: Challenge Design Document

Urban Autonomous Tricycle

Later on, I joined MIT Media Lab Changing Places Group and devoted myself to the next generation of Autonomous Vehicle- PEV.

Environmental Infrastructure for Autonomous Driving

After coming to birthplace of self-driving car – The Robotics Institute of Carnegie Mellon University, I initiated a team a five to build the autonomous driving infrastructures for the future cities.

Many Others

Besides from building autonomous vehicles, I also did the social mining in Andorra and action recognition using machine learning and deep learning tools.
