News round-up on autonomous driving technology
A new report by the US-based Collision and Repair magazine summarises recent news publications on automated driving. The report for example points out that the technological development for autonomous vehicles is pointing strongly into the direction of learning-based programmes, instead of rules-based ones. “In unsupervised machine learning, the examples aren’t labelled. The AI has to classify and organize the examples based on common characteristics. Stop signs, for example, are red with white borders and eight sides. The AI can learn as it goes that sometimes that red is faded and sometimes a white border will be obscured by a tree branch, but it can make changes as needed to classify stop signs as stop signs.” The report also sets out to shed some light into the numerous joint ventures that are forming in the field of automated vehicles.
