Making autonomous vehicles robust with active learning, federated learning & V2X communication

When we think of driving in general, there are good drivers and bad drivers. So, on a 2D spectrum, we would picture a cluster of data of those drivers and realise that the good drivers’ data is clustered around a particular coordinate(x,y) while the bad drivers’ data is all over the place.
