Artificial intelligence driving autonomous vehicle development
Companies are leveraging artificial intelligence, machine learning and deep learning to accelerate development of self-driving vehicle systems
Autonomous driving is one of the key application areas of artificial intelligence (AI). Autonomous vehicles (AV) are equipped with multiple sensors, such as cameras, radars and lidar, which help them better understand the surroundings and in path planning. These sensors generate massive amount of data. To make sense of the data produced by these sensors, AVs need supercomputer-like, nearly instant processing capabilities. Companies developing AV systems are relying heavily on AI, in the form of machine learning and deep learning, to process the vast amount of data efficiently and to train and validate their autonomous driving systems.
