Seoul launches VR simulator to test autonomous driving

#artificialintelligence

The Seoul Metropolitan Government (SMG) has announced it is building a pilot driving zone for autonomous cars. Forming part of the cooperative intelligent transport system (C-ITS) construction project, the virtual reality autonomous driving simulator will reflect road, traffic, and weather conditions by using digital twin technologies. According to SMG, by expanding the virtual territory to Gangnam and the city centre, it will enable Seoul to "leap forward" as a city of commercialised self-driving vehicles. The autonomous driving simulator will be open to the public, and anyone from companies to research institutes, start-ups, and universities can use it free of charge. SMG's rationale is the greater the numbers of developers who test the simulator the more opportunity there is to improve their technologies, and help the industry to further advance.


Red Hat Linux is coming to your Vette and Caddy Escalade

ZDNet

Steven J. Vaughan-Nichols, aka sjvn, has been writing about technology and the business of technology since CP/M-80 was the cutting edge, PC operating system; 300bps was a fast Internet connection; WordStar was the state of the art word processor; and we liked it. Linux has long played a role in cars. Some companies, such as Tesla, run their own homebrew Linux distros. Audi, Mercedes-Benz, Hyundai, and Toyota all rely on Automotive Grade Linux (AGL). AGL is a collaborative cross-industry effort developing an open platform for connected cars with over 140 members.

Do you find these levels helpful when it comes to knowing what an AV can do? What's the difference between driver support features and automated driving? Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE) recognise that levels 0-2 are better defined as'driver support features.' Level 3 and above encompass what they would now refer to as'automated driving features.' a six degrees of automated driving: from zero automation to full automation.


Self-Driving Cars With Convolutional Neural Networks (CNN) - neptune.ai

#artificialintelligence

Humanity has been waiting for self-driving cars for several decades. Thanks to the extremely fast evolution of technology, this idea recently went from "possible" to "commercially available in a Tesla". Deep learning is one of the main technologies that enabled self-driving. It's a versatile tool that can solve almost any problem – it can be used in physics, for example, the proton-proton collision in the Large Hadron Collider, just as well as in Google Lens to classify pictures. Deep learning is a technology that can help solve almost any type of science or engineering problem. CNN is the primary algorithm that these systems use to recognize and classify different parts of the road, and to make appropriate decisions. Along the way, we'll see how Tesla, Waymo, and Nvidia use CNN algorithms to make their cars driverless or autonomous. The first self-driving car was invented in 1989, it was the Automatic Land Vehicle in Neural Network (ALVINN). It used neural networks to detect lines, segment the environment, navigate itself, and drive. It worked well, but it was limited by slow processing powers and insufficient data.


Powering Data-Driven Autonomy at Scale with Camera Data

#artificialintelligence

At Woven Planet Level 5, we're using machine learning (ML) to build an autonomous driving system that improves as it observes more human driving. This is based on our Autonomy 2.0 approach, which leverages machine learning and data to solve the complex task of driving safely. This is unlike traditional systems, where engineers hand-design rules for every possible driving event. Last year, we took a critical step in delivering on Autonomy 2.0 by using an ML model to power our motion planner, the core decision-making module of our self-driving system. We saw the ML Planner's performance improve as we trained it on more human driving data.


Best usages of Artificial Intelligence in everyday life (2022) - Dataconomy

#artificialintelligence

There are so many great applications of Artificial Intelligence in daily life, by using machine learning and other techniques in the background. AI is everywhere in our lives, from reading our emails to receiving driving directions to obtaining music or movie suggestions. Don't be scared of AI jargon; we've created a detailed AI glossary for the most commonly used Artificial Intelligence terms and the basics of Artificial Intelligence. Now if you're ready, let's look at how we use AI in 2022. Artificial intelligence (AI) appears in popular culture most often as a group of intelligent robots bent on destroying humanity, or at the very least a stunning theme park. We're safe for now because machines with general artificial intelligence don't yet exist, and they aren't expected to anytime soon. You can learn the risk and benefits of Artificial Intelligence with this article.


Small Drones Are Giving Ukraine an Unprecedented Edge

WIRED

In the snowy streets of the north Ukrainian town of Trostyanets, the Russian missile system fires rockets every second. Tanks and military vehicles are parked on either side of the blasting artillery system, positioned among houses and near the town's railway system. The weapon is not working alone, though. Hovering tens of meters above it and recording the assault is a Ukrainian drone. The drone isn't a sophisticated military system, but a small, commercial machine that anyone can buy.


Korean startup Mars Auto set to launch self-driving trucks in 2023

#artificialintelligence

Autonomous driving solutions are the next big thing in the transportation field. While many companies are bringing out autonomous driving solutions for passenger vehicles, not many are indulging in heavy motor vehicle autonomous driving solutions yet. Korean startup Mars Auto is dedicated to building self-driving trucks for commercial use. Self-driving truck technology is quite different from autonomous driving technology for urban passenger cars, and Mars Auto wants to make the technology commercial. Mars Auto develops artificial intelligence (AI)-based autonomous driving software for trucks for cargo transport.


Self-Driving Cars Ended Up Stranded in Traffic: Why and How?

#artificialintelligence

Tesla began offering beta tests of its "Full Self-Driving" software (FSD) to roughly 60,000 Tesla customers in late 2020, upon passing a safety exam and paying $12,000. Customers will test the automated driving assistance system in order to help enhance it before it is released to the public. The Autonomous Vehicle (AV) sector is taking an unusual approach by putting new technologies in the hands of inexperienced testers. Other businesses, such as Alphabet's Waymo, GM's Cruise, and Aurora, an autonomous vehicle startup, use safety operators to test technologies on predetermined routes. While the move has strengthened Tesla's populist credentials among supporters, it has also proven to be dangerous in terms of reputation.


JR West robots to tackle dangerous tasks

The Japan Times

The robot looks down at the train tracks, its metallic arms resembling something out of the "Mobile Suit Gundam" anime series. In the cockpit below, its human operator maneuvers the robot into place, seeing through its "eyes" above as it approaches the high-voltage wires. In response to Japan's labor shortage, West Japan Railway Co. (JR West) is developing humanoid robots like this one to handle maintenance and construction work, specializing in dangerous places. The railway operator hopes to officially put the robots to work in the spring of 2024. "The operator steers the robot from the cockpit (near the ground) so they can work safely on tasks high in the air," said JR West President Kazuaki Hasegawa during a news conference last month.
