On board the Chinese autonomous car
It is a small circuit, but narrow and with very tight corners. A rookie driver would not go for it with much confidence, but the self-propelled car that has designed next to the Chinese automaker Great Wall walks it without problem. That is a bulky SUV. It starts Says in Chinese the driver that carries out the test and that has to be in charge for reasons of security. Like when a human being practices to get the license to drive. The truth is that the instructor stands by does nothing more than give orders with the voice. Take the detour to the right to get himself a shortcut. The car obeys without question.
They will have to live with flesh and blood drivers. By 2025, the Chinese Government expects that 15% of the 35 million vehicles to be sold that year in its territory will be equipped with highly autonomous systems. More surprising is the second round of the venue that has installed in the New International Exhibition Center of Shanghai, the gigantic triangular complex that this week hosts the Eastern version of the CES technology fair.
While the car finished the first route, an operator has included a simple traffic sign that indicates to the car the obligation to enter the detour and not continue straight. Without the driver saying a word, the intelligent vehicle reads the signal with its cameras and takes the shortcut.
On board the Chinese autonomous car, it is time to make our children smarter than artificial intelligence. On board the Chinese autonomous car, boarding passes will be history facial recognition will suffice the test may seem a bit rudimentary and far removed from the complexity of real roads. However, it demonstrates the potential of non-drive vehicles, and they reaffirm as a major player in its development. Of course, first it will be only on highways, where the conditions are much more favorable for the current technology.
By 2025, the Chinese Government expects that 15% of the 35 million vehicles to be sold that year in its territory will be equipped with highly autonomous systems. Consumers seem to be willing to lend a hand in this transition, because 75% favor pro-driver cars, according to a Boston Consulting Group study. It is a very high percentage if you consider that in the United States, it stays at 52% and it drops to 36% in Japan.
We also believe that China is the ideal place to develop the autonomous car because of the complexity involved in driving here ads with irony. However, we are clear that we do not want to do it alone. That is why we have decided to open in July the platform we have created in the Apollo Project and let the manufacturers benefit from what we have devised so far and contribute their knowledge. In this way, they will find it much easier to make autonomous vehicles.
The big change came with Maps, the application of navigation in high resolution whose design had to be modified to meet the needs of autonomous vehicles. We have added more sensors to the hundreds of vehicles that are traveling every day on roads of all kinds, including dirt tracks. Now we also collect all the data of the pilot’s behavior, from how much the steering wheel turns, to how you press the pedals. The Government sees the possibility that China will advance to the traditional powers in new sectors that offer business opportunities
We need to improve voice commands and fine-tune the algorithms. The challenge is, as in many other sectors, to use the big data in the cloud well to do an analysis that allows us to make almost perfect predictions that guarantee the safety of users. We are convinced that the autonomous car will drive better than any human being says the vice president. To achieve this, in this new phase, deep learning deep learning and automatic learning machine learning are vital.
At least we will have to travel 200 million miles (321 million kilometers) to reach our goal. We do not want to make cars without a driver but to establish their standards says the manager. And achieving that goal is not only a priority for him it is also a priority for the Chinese government which sees the possibility that the Asian giant will advance to the traditional powers in new sectors that offer business opportunities billionaire.
