Self-driving cars need sensors such as cameras and radar in order to ‘see’ the world around them. But sensor data alone isn’t enough. Autonomous vehicles also need the computing power and advanced machine intelligence to analyse multiple, sometimes conflicting data streams to create a single, accurate view of their environment. Known as ‘sensor fusion’, it […]
If people outside of the car industry have heard of lidar, there’s a good chance it’s thanks to Tesla CEO Elon Musk. While most teams working on self-driving cars see the light-based technology as an essential tool, Musk insists it’s a false hope – an expensive misstep that distracts from perfect, camera-based vision. Musk and […]
It’s great to see the government in Taiwan step up its efforts to promote the teaching of AI in its elementary and high schools through its latest educational policy initiatives.
What are the core differences between these three sensor types? Which type represents the best foundation for the Level 5 autonomous vehicles we expect in the near future?
Autonomous vehicles (AVs) essentially convert drivers into passengers, eliminating the role were a human is required to pay attention to driving. How will entertainment technologies in autonomous vehicles adapt and evolve? Let’s consider a few examples.
