At first there were the sensors, then the cameras, and finally the radars arrived and as an evolution of these long-range Lidar radars. All of these tools are what allowed Research and development departments (research and development) For every car company, develop in Driving assistance systemsIt is neither more nor less than The first step to achieving self-driving cars.
In any case, There is still some resistance to the application of some of these obstructions or motion sensing elements, especially because of its cost. This is the case of Tesla, which recently announced that Model 3 and Model Y cars exported to Europe will not have Lidar as part of its autopilot equipment, Brand autonomous driving system. cars made Elon Musk in China and Berlin will only be equipped with cameras and sensors, but not with radarfor, as they say, they will soon come equipped with Its Tesla Vision system, already in use in the US and Canada, is based on eight cameras working jointly and one Deep Neural Network.
While this is happening, most automakers continue to use Lidar technology to develop and improve the accuracy of their ADAS (Advance Driving Assistance System) systems.one of them Aprilwhich just announced the launch of a new system called Perception of the earthly reality (a real perception of the environment).
This new resource based on machine learning and meArtificial Intelligence (AI)integrates information from Lidar, radar, and cameras The latest generation of high performance Detect the shape and distance of objectsAs well as the structure of the area around the vehicle in real time with a high degree of accuracy.
With this information, The onboard processor instantly analyzes the situation, assesses the surrounding environment and automatically performs the necessary maneuvers to avoid collisionbut not only the natural effects of public roads such as parked car unexpectedly or Car collides and intersects On the way, or even A pedestrian appears in the foreground from the car trip. The Nissan Ground Truth Perception system can detect an object approaching a vehicle, such as an item that has exited from another vehicle, such as a wheel or part of a truckload. Once detected, perform a maneuver Dodging so that this element does not hit the car, for example, on the windshield.
Additionally, by measuring the distant environment, the system can also anticipate traffic congestion and eventually change lanes.or even greater presentation Helps drivers in areas where map information is not available Detailed information, just by knowing the destination on the onboard navigator and the ability to detect obstacles and road signs.
The Nissan Ground Truth Perception system was developed on conventional carslike Driver assistance behind the wheel This seems to be the idea of the company. The system will work if someone is also driving the car, Not only when he is in a freelance job, For the principle firmly defended by the brand.
Nissan is one of the companies that believes that self-driving should not be a barrier for those who enjoy driving to do so. very assured Ashwani GuptaCOO, Nissan Motor Corporation, in Exclusive interview with Infobae In Puerto Iguazu a few days ago when he mentioned it “As far as we know, young people are tech-savvy. They want to be free to decide when to drive and when not to drive. Which means they want freedom. This is why self-driving, as a human-centered technology, is the right way, because when they want They can delegate and when they don’t want to, they can enjoy driving. That’s what I think the future is.”
Once again, technology has arrived to make the task that a human can perform independently better and easier. The speed and range of tools developed works in the same way as a scientific calculator, it makes it faster, a certain process that a human can do in a longer time.
