About Me


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

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.
