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...

NEW ARCHITECTURE FOR AUTONOMOUS DRIVING INVOLVING DRIVING RISK ASSESSMENT

NEW ARCHITECTURE FOR AUTONOMOUS DRIVING INVOLVING DRIVING RISK ASSESSMENT Architectures of Autonomous Driving systems use to be feed forward open loop chains that are supposed to give a good solution to any problem. Inputs come from sensors that are fusionned in order to bring a good situation understanding. Then a decision making system sends what to do to actuators. This works fine, but of course, whatever the number of validation scenarios, there will always exist cases where the glabal system is not adapted to the situation. ... [Lire la suite]
