Helps people who can’t or don’t want to drive to get around, helps kids get to sports practice, and more.
Improve driving through AI and Machine Learning-enables
AI improves safety by 100X!
AI and ML combine sensors with prediction, mapping, and perception.
Prediction: perceiving and classifying objects, pedestrians, people in manholes or costumes
Provides sensor data in all forms in real times
Predicts what other drivers might do-example, cars running a red light, model understands unusual behavior and accommodates for safety
ML assists differentiating objects from the background, for example, driving in snow and spotting moving and parked cars
