Robotaxis: What’s The Difference Between 10x Better & 10x Safer?

When thinking of being a 10 times better driver — better in solving difficult situations — we get a completely different picture. In that case, we can remove all the victims of DUI, texting, dozing off while driving, disciplining the kids in the back seat, or plain stupid behavior like reckless speeding. That is about 90% of all accidents. The other ~10% of accidents are the result of the driver not being fast enough, not being experienced enough, having only 2 eyes (with none in the back of his head), and other normal...

Lower cost perception system supports ADAS development

Hao Zheng, co-founder and CEO of RoboK, said, “Advanced driving features, which range from collision avoidance and automatic lane-keeping through to fully automated driving, require miles of road test driving to ensure their safety. Although simulation provides a resource-efficient alternative it can be time-consuming. To accurately and realistically simulate all elements in the entire system it can take many hours to run and process even a single driving scenario. “We have reduced the... [Lire la suite]

Ford partners with Michigan Science Center for interactive AV experience

Ford Motor Company has partnered with the Michigan Science Center (MiSci) to educate the community on the future of transportation, creating MiSci’s first AV exhibit. Built by Ford engineers and developers working closely with MiSci, the installation resembles a vehicle of the future that guests can engage with and explore inside to learn about AVs through interactive displays and a simulation. The exhibit shows how AVs operate and make decisions without a human driver, using data that is collected through 3D maps, cameras, sensors... [Lire la suite]
