Artificial Intelligence (AI) helps the vehicle to take decision in complex environment. AI is utilized in automobiles industry for smart mobility. At present, automotive industry has employed advanced driver assistance system (ADAS) and with increase amount of embedded intelligent the industry is progressing towards semi-autonomous vehicle. AI enables real-time recognition of surroundings and automates the vehicle mobility, controls in-vehicle systems, and eventually prevents accident. The various applications of AI in automobile sector is road tracking, capturing driver's gesture and expression, passenger experience, fleet management, weather monitoring, predictive maintenance, location search, E-payment and in-vehicle system control.
Ford Motor Company heightens its efforts to pave the way for autonomous vehicles by making a five-year, US$ 1-billion-dollar investment in startup artificial intelligence company Argo AI. This strategic move makes the Detroit automaker the majority stakeholder of Argo AI while also putting them a step ahead in the competition to develop and produce self-driving vehicles by 2021. Seeking ways to make transportation safer by combining advancements in computer science, robotics and artificial intelligence, Argo AI was founded by former Google and Uber leaders and is composed of experienced roboticists and engineers led by Argo AI founders Bryan Salesky, company CEO, and Peter Rander, company COO who are both alumni of Carnegie Mellon National Robotics Engineering Center. The team from Argo AI will support the machine-learning software developed of Ford's autonomous vehicle development team by providing the robotics talent and expertise in order to achieve a fully functioning self-driving vehicle. Ford will spearhead the development of the autonomous vehicle hardware platform, systems integration, manufacturing, exterior and interior design, and regulatory policy management while Argo AI develops and deploys the latest advancements in artificial intelligence, machine learning and computer vision to help build safe and efficient self-driving vehicles.
In the crowded streets of San Francisco, companies such as Uber and Cruise Automation have been testing self-driving vehicles for years now. In suburban Phoenix, hundreds of autonomous Waymo vehicles are driving as many as 25,000 miles per day. There are, in fact, dozens of cities around the world hosting pilot programs for self-driving vehicles. The latest addition to that list is Columbus, Ohio, where a series of self-driving shuttles are being deployed on city streets this week. The electric, low-speed vehicles -- operated by the Michigan-based start-up May Mobility -- will begin testing and mapping local streets before accepting passengers in December, the company said.
Self-driving vehicles move closer toward reality every day, but most of us will likely live through a few more presidential elections before driverless travel is routinely within reach through personal purchase (although availability through ride-hailing providers like Uber and Lyft could be here sooner). Even so, you're more likely to encounter such vehicles in your daily travel, because many states and cities are now serving as testing grounds for these rapidly advancing technologies, and the list of locations is growing steadily. Legislators in 29 states have passed laws related to autonomous vehicles (AV), and governors in 11 more states have issued AV-related executive orders. But regardless of where they're happening, there are two things to remember about these experiments: They are inescapably disruptive, and they are entirely necessary. Slightly more than half of U.S. adults are apprehensive about riding in a self-driving vehicle, citing safety concerns and a general lack of trust in the technology, according to a Pew survey in 2017.
Autonomous vehicles (AV)––the next revolution for work play & good, highly autonomous driving by 2025/30 which is the best example of Human and machine co-work. Car that drive themselves are no longer the stuff of fantasy, but of technology that is set to become a reality that will completely disrupt not just the way we drive, but the way we live. It's become a free-for-all race, where all the top automakers are competing with not just each other but also against non-automotive tech giants to put driver-less or autonomous cars on the road. Autonomous Driving is not the craziest idea. Let's face the third dimension with mobility.
