The Startup Rushing to Usher in the Self-Driving Era Even Faster

The #Startup Rushing to Usher in the #SelfDriving Era Even Faster  @driveai_ #Cars #AI

  • Drive.ai never set out to build the best self-driving car.
  • Instead of striking early deals with car manufacturers to see who can roll out the most robust working product—though Drive.ai says it has some secret deals in place already—the company has focused on creating the best possible, fully autonomous self-driving AI “brain” in the world.
  • The company’s test vehicles have shown promising results driving in cloudy and rainy conditions that continue to stump other self-driving cars, bringing the world that much closer to the true prize in self-driving tech: the ability to eliminate the human altogether.
  • For now, drivers are expected to maintain awareness at all times, ready to take control of mostly self-driving cars if conditions make the automated system screw up.
  • And by lowering the price tag on self-driving from the cost of a new futuristic vehicle to that of a retrofit kit that can hook up with your old Toyota Tercel, Drive.ai could create a mass market overnight.

Using a simple kit users can make their cars self-driving if Drive.Ai is able to make these work for all car models on the road.

  • Core to Drive.ai’ s approach is using deep learning across the board in its autonomous driving system, which means they’re teaching their self-driving cars somewhat like how you’d teach a human.
  • Drive.ai uses deep learning to teach self-driving cars – and to give them a voice
  • While increasing the safety of driving means building an effective ‘left brain’ for a self-driving car, so to speak, it also means addressing the ‘right brain,’ too.
  • Uber and Volvo put $300M into building self-driving cars ready for sale by 2021
  • Startup Drive.ai is revealing its product and strategy for the first time, and the autonomous driving tech company is looking not only to create the best hardware and software to enable self-driving cars, but also to make sure those cars communicate with people outside of the car in the most effective way possible.
