The Building Blocks of Autonomous Tech

The Building Blocks of Autonomous Tech   Mimicking the many things humans do while driving requires a complex blend of technologies. An array of several sensors per vehicle is needed to monitor a 360° field of view around the car. Fast networks that send data to the electronic controls are required to analyze inputs and make decisions about steering, braking and speed. OEMs, Tier 1s and other suppliers are vying with and in some cases partnering with and acquiring a relentless wave of start-ups and industry disruptors... [Lire la suite]

Aftermarket Autonomous Driving

Aftermarket Autonomous Driving The most critical advantage autonomous vehicles can provide you with is the potential for zero accidents and injuries during drive time. Purchasing a completely autonomously driving vehicle may not be within your reach or budget right now, but you can take advantage of the technology that is currently available and affordable. At Auto One, you can find vision systems and driver assistance systems that will enhance your driving safety. Some of the options you have to consider are: Rostra Precision... [Lire la suite]

Legislation facilitating use of autonomous cars could be on the way

Legislation facilitating use of autonomous cars could be on the way Autonomous vehicles might be exempt in the future from some of the safety standards put in place by the NHTSA (National Highway Traffic Safety Administration) if changes that accommodate this new type of road vehicle sees the light of day. Automotive giants such as GM have called for legislative changes that would allow "the full deployment of self-driving vehicles" which, at the moment, have to be equipped with a steering wheel, pedals, and mirrors, although...

Waymo and Tesla, Same Goals Different Paths to Level 5

Waymo and Tesla, Same Goals Different Paths to Level 5 Waymo and Tesla both have the same goal toward fully L5 driverless self driving cars, but they differ in approach from a design and engineering philosophy. Elon Musk relies on computer vision systems that use a combination of ultrasonic, radar and camera devices. Waymo on the other hand use a very fundamental device among driverless car makers and that is LiDAR. Elon believes Tesla can rely on it’s sophisticated hardware with AI software while Waymo implements LiDAR at the... [Lire la suite]

NEW LEAD TO TRANSFORM AUTONOMOUS DRIVING LEVEL 3 TO LEVEL 5 AUTONOMY

NEW LEAD TO TRANSFORM AUTONOMOUS DRIVING LEVEL 3 TO LEVEL 5 AUTONOMY Car manufacturers like WAYMO and TESLA has been developing high value Autonomous (AD) systems that are said to be level 3. AD systems are complex architectures in a feedforward chain : . perception. Sensor fusion. Situation understanding and holding. Decision making. Actuators Such a feedforward chain is validated on crossings of use cases recorded in huge databases.The problem is that it is not possible to validate a feedforward chain on a database and know...

Computing onboard, in real time, the risk that the driver is currently taking

Computing onboard, in real time, the risk that the driver is currently taking There is a software component called SafetyNex that can compute onboard (and not on the cloud), in real time (and not on a back office server one week after), at each moment (i.e. 20 times per second), the risk that driver is currently taking. This driving risk is computed with anticipation. The software component is called SafetyNex, proposed by the company NEXYAD (We Save Lives). If driver is a human being, it has been shown that alerting driver a few... [Lire la suite]

DEEP REINFORCEMENT LEARNING FOR AUTONOMOUS VEHICLES-STATE OF THE ART

DEEP REINFORCEMENT LEARNING FOR AUTONOMOUS VEHICLES-STATE OF THE ART Reinforcement learning is considered to be one of the strongest paradigms in AI domain, which can be applied to teach machines how to behave through environment interaction. Recently the concept of deep reinforcement learning (DRL) was introduced and was tested with success in games like Atari 2600 or Go, proving the capability to learn a good representation of the environment. In this moment there are few implementations of DRL in the autonomous driving field. In... [Lire la suite]

Tesla CEO Elon Musk: ‘self-driving will encompass all modes of driving by the end of 2019’

Tesla CEO Elon Musk: ‘self-driving will encompass all modes of driving by the end of 2019’ lon Musk has often updated his timeline for fully self-driving vehicles and today, he updated again when talking about the advent of artificial intelligence. Tesla’s CEO now says that he expects the technology will start to be widespread in any aspect of driving as soon as within “the next 18 months.” Musk’s timeline for the advent of self-driving technology is especially interesting to many Tesla owners who bought the automaker’s recent...
