The study is part of DARPA's Revolutionary Enhancement of Visibility by Exploiting Active Light-fields (REVEAL) program, which is developing a variety of different techniques to image hidden objects around corners. … [Read more...] about Artificial Intelligence system that allows self-driving cars to ‘see’ around corners in real time could help prevent accidents
Self driving car accident
Tesla’s Model S has an advanced cruise control feature called Autopilot, which uses cameras and radar to detect the car’s position in lane, the proximity of other cars and the speed limit. It can control the car’s speed and steering to keep it in the middle of the lane, reacting to other cars and changing lanes on command. … [Read more...] about Self-driving cars: who’s building them and how do they work?
In highway driving, the stakes seem higher: The cars move faster, and there’s lots more of them. Yet it’s simpler in lots of ways for a computer to master. Cars go straight, unless they’re changing lanes, and there’s very little navigation really required, beyond entry and exit ramps. So to prove its capabilities, we did all of the complex stuff: We drove on and off ramps at variable speeds, merged into a three-lane highway, navigated highway interchanges, dodged 18-wheelers. … [Read more...] about Qualcomm’s self-driving car made me never want to touch a steering wheel again
City engineers, however, are looking to avoid the potential threat from cybercriminals by creating separate data storage on multiple digital networks to prevent hackers from having access to a single car, simply by compromising one or two web networks, the media report says. … [Read more...] about Hacked Self-Driving Cars Will Create Chaos Say US Researchers – Report
“There is no conceptual or empirical data to support the contention that online classes lag in quality relative to the traditional classroom experience,” the report said. “It is more accurate to say that online classes have advantages and disadvantages, just as is the case for regular classroom instruction, and that these advantages and disadvantages play out in different ways for different subjects, and for different kinds of students.” … [Read more...] about Baidu scientist: We should adapt to self-driving cars
