Experts say driverless cars will require artificial intelligence

Experts say driverless cars will require artificial intelligence Automakers intending to bring driverless cars to market need to work as much on software design as mechanical engineering, the researcher leading Nissan Motor Co.’s automated-vehicle program said. Making cars that are “deliberative” in assessing road conditions, rather than just reactive, requires artificial intelligence, Maarten Sierhuis, director of Nissan’s Silicon Valley research center in Sunnyvale, California, said in an interview. The carmaker, which aims to... [Lire la suite]

Turns Out the Hardware in Self-Driving Cars Is Pretty Cheap

  The full benefits of autonomous cars—a drastic drop in fatal crashes, more efficient driving, the chance to master Clash of Clans while commuting—are at least five years away. Automakers and tech companies must perfect software. Insurance companies have to recalculate premiums. Regulators are thinking up fresh rules. But one part of the puzzle’s been solved: the hardware. The physical elements crucial for seeing and navigating the world have been developed. Some are already in production. And they’re surprisingly cheap. The... [Lire la suite]

The key problems facing driverless cars

The key problems facing driverless cars By The Car Expert In 2020, driverless cars will no longer be a thing of the future. It will be present-day technology. But just like with any other new and advancing technology, it doesn’t come without its own obstacles it needs to face. Companies and research organisations have been conducting experiments on automating cars from as early as the 1920s, developing prototypes and trialling the vehicles out. The biggest achievement came in 2013 when four U.S states (Nevada, California,... [Lire la suite]
