Artificial intelligence at the heart of the automotive future
Artificial intelligence (AI) has become an integral part of our daily lives. That’s why the automotive industry has begun to use AI to make the driving experience easier and safer.
A team of scientists from the Department of Computer Science at Brown University in Providence, USA, is teaching algorithms how to (not) drive using footage of drivers who break the highway code or behave recklessly, taking into account the comments of any passengers.
Surely, in the future, when vehicles will be driving on semi-autonomous stretches of road, the driver-passenger monitoring system will become indispensable to ensure that the driver can take the wheel safely at any time and avoid potential dangerous situations.
IA will not only be used for semi autonomous driving, it will also be used to develop cameras capable of detecting partially hidden pedestrians and make the automatic emergency braking system more reliable.
In addition, to increase driving safety, new vehicle cockpit monitoring systems will be tested to detect whether the driver is tired or distracted, using artificial intelligence to analyse eyelid movements, eye direction and head position.
The future of the automotive is now written, IA is destined to assist and replace the human driver.
