These Two Technologies Will Convince You That Self-driving Cars Aren't Death Traps
Ford and Tesla are securing big data for its self-driving cars in order to optimize customer experience and operational safety. Both automakers are ultimately laying the foundation for the fully autonomous vehicle adventure. As part of this plan and process, customers of the firms are essentially being used as the test drivers.
Recently, Ford gathered data from more than 4 million cars equipped with sensors and remote application which manages software. This tool can improve fuel consumption, emissions, as well as quality standards. On the other hand, Tesla offered an optional technology kit to customers since 2014. This present includes employed cameras and sensors in order to support collision warning systems and know more about driving behaviors.
After a year of collecting and analyzing data from these carriers, Tesla finally sent out an update giving 60,000 cars self-driving facilities. This enabled the car to govern braking, steering, speed and lane-changing on its own. Just like a laptop or smartphone where the update is automatic, customers didn’t have to bring their self-driving car into a dealer shop.
Two Technologies That Self-driving Cars Need
At Intel’s San Jose headquarters on Wednesday, the company unveiled its new research center for autonomous vehicles. It also showed off the first of the 40 BMW 7 Series self-driving cars that will join the lines of autonomous cars on the Bay Area’s roads soon. Intel is currently focusing on developing platforms for self-driving cars in partnership with the car technology company Delphi and Mobileye. The tech company wants to be the brains of every single autonomous vehicle out there.
A bonafide 5G wireless network may help overcome the many technical hurdles to getting a self-driving vehicle on the road, according to Gizmodo. It also moves massive amounts of sensor data between cars and the cloud, which makes a more power and efficient learning system. With the use of a 5G wireless network, maps can also change in real time in order to give autonomous cars the correct path on the road and the ability to see more than what the sensors allow.
Both 5G network and sensor capability are a must in order to have a good road experience. As reported by CNET, these two technologies will make or break self-driving cars. If automakers can nail great 5G wireless network and sensor fusion, this whole self-driving business might actually work.
