The future belongs to intelligent vehicles

The future belongs to intelligent vehicles Be prepared for the imminent auto storm Although the United States National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has a broader definition for intelligent vehicles, which is accepted by many countries, cars as a whole can be classified into five grades. If a manually driven car is grade 0, a fully self-driving car will be grade 4. A grade-4 car should have a perfect combination of environmental perception, decision-making and automatic control. For example, Google's driverless car, which... [Lire la suite]
