1. There are too many “corner cases.” While driver less cars have demonstrated remarkable proficiency in many aspects of driving, some contend that many driving scenarios will remain unsolved. MIT’s John Leonard, for example, points to left hand turns into heavy traffic, adverse weather, changes to road surfaces, and eye and hand gestures as open
With autonomous vehicles and connected cars already starting to hit the roads of cities across the globe, the potential benefits and challenges of this mobility revolution are being scrutinized in increasing detail. Research from Ohio University has highlighted just some of the potential ways that driverless cars could improve our lives – whether it’s by
Even though they’re barely on the road, self-driving cars have been talked about so much that they already seem like they’re last year’s model. Google has been working on one for years. Apple is allegedly, possibly, working on one, too. And there’s even speculation that everyone from Uber to Tesla could join the race, too.
To perfect self-driving cars, companies in the AV space are now working on different approaches, focused on perception, mapping, and localization. Perception. The goal—to achieve reliable levels of perception with the smallest number of test and validation miles needed. Two approaches are vying to win this race. Radar, sonar, and cameras. To perceive vehicles and
An autonomous car is a vehicle that can guide itself without human conduction. This kind of vehicle has become a concrete reality and may pave the way for future systems where computers take over the art of driving. An autonomous car is also known as a driverless car, robot car, self-driving car or autonomous vehicle.
