Default About Autonomous / Self-Driving Cars

How often does the driver of an autonomous car need to intervene? Read and weep. No dozing away behind the wheel of any autonomous car any time soon.

On some of these, you are just waiting for the thing to miss something.


Whatever you do, don't get a car powered by Apple, you might as well drive yourself!

ATI Motors, a Bengaluru based company has come up with an autonomous cargo vehicle capable of handling weights up to 500kgs. Although the concept is not completely novel or revolutionary, it is a matter of pride that the vehicle is mostly indigenous. Also, one of the co founders is a sixteen year old boy who is said to be a class 5th school dropout.

Virtual pedestrians pave way to safer roads for driverless cars

About Autonomous / Self-Driving Cars-screenshot_20190315172426_chrome.jpg

A "virtual human" suddenly steps out at a blind bend, but the engineer in the Volvo car's driving seat on the test track doesn't flinch, leaving it to software to take evasive action.

Private test tracks like the one owned by Sweden's AstaZero are playing an increasing role as manufacturers like Volvo put self-driving cars through their paces following high-profile setbacks on public roads, auto executives say.

Automakers and technology companies are locked in a race to bring these vehicles into commercial use by 2022, but their efforts on public roads stumbled last year when an Uber test car hit and killed a pedestrian.

"Everybody has revised the protocols a little bit after that kind of crash because we cannot have that again," Dennis Nobelius, head of Volvo Cars' Zenuity driverless software joint venture, told Reuters.

"The industry ... has really been made to do one more loop ... not only (to) make the end product safe enough but also make the testing secure," Nobelius said from the backseat of the autonomous Volvo car at AstaZero's track.
Public road testing has become more challenging for driverless vehicles as software which controls brake and steering is trialled, unlike previously when people controlled breaking and steering and software the other functions.


Trucks which drive themselves are even tougher to test than cars because of their size and weight and truckmakers say they are running tests at enclosed sites like warehouses, harbours and mines where human access can be restricted for safety.

Zenuity uses AstaZero's virtual recreation to test cars using data from Malaysia, aiming to deliver software which is safe anywhere in the world.

Start-up Einride uses one of the tracks to check whether a person in Barcelona can use Ericsson's 5G network to remotely steer its driverless electric truck, which gives a warning and stops when it encounters a moose or other roadblock.

The idea is eventually to allow customers like DB Schenker, which has already begun using Einride's truck on Swedish roads, to be able to monitor a fleet of such trucks from a control room and a person there to be able to switch any truck that encounters an obstacle to remote control and navigate it safely.
