But the reports offer, at best, a flawed glimpse into the slow and often opaque process of testing autonomous vehicles on public roads, says Kyle Vogt, co-founder and CTO of GM-based Cruise.

Uber’s Self-Driving Car Didn’t Know Pedestrians Could Jaywalk

Uber’s Self-Driving Car Didn’t Know Pedestrians Could Jaywalk The software inside the Uber self-driving SUV that killed an Arizona woman last year was not designed to detect pedestrians outside of a crosswalk, according to new documents released as part of a federal investigation into the incident. That’s the most damning revelation in a trove of new documents related to the crash, but other details indicate that, in a variety of ways, Uber’s self-driving tech failed to consider how humans actually...

Machine vision, AI, driving an evolution in fleet safety

Machine vision, AI, driving an evolution in fleet safety Video event recorders and telematics platforms are advancing rapidly with machine vision and artificial intelligence (AI). Early versions of the products — no more than a decade old by now — are limited in comparison to newer versions that use these technologies. Lytx, a pioneer of video-based driver safety systems, recently shared with CCJ how it uses machine vision and AI to simplify the workflow for fleets while expanding the capabilities of safety and risk...

Fleets using artificial intelligence to accelerate safety, efficiency

Fleets using artificial intelligence to accelerate safety, efficiency “Artificial intelligence” (AI) may evoke fears of robots writing their own software code and not taking orders from humans. The real AI, at least in present form, is delivering results in the business world. Technology companies are using powerful computers and advanced statistical models to accelerate their product development. Most are not calling these efforts AI but rather machine learning. As a form of AI, machine learning is making it possible to quickly... [Lire la suite]
