Artificial intelligence driving autonomous vehicle development

Artificial intelligence driving autonomous vehicle development Autonomous driving is one of the key application areas of artificial intelligence (AI). Autonomous vehicles (AV) are equipped with multiple sensors, such as cameras, radars and lidar, which help them better understand the surroundings and in path planning. These sensors generate a massive amount of data. To make sense of the data produced by these sensors, AVs need supercomputer-like, nearly instant processing capabilities. Companies developing AV systems rely heavily... [Lire la suite]
