The future of the automotive industry: self driving cars

 

selfcar

We’ve all been there. Everyone is facing urgent situations such as rushing around to reach the post office on time before it closes, to reach the grocery store for making your purchase and so on. In such situations they have to drive the vehicle while their mind was on something else. This urgency may lead to slight accidents by hitting the vehicle in front of them. The only solution for this issue is paying attention. The most common reason of traffic accidents is the driver error caused by driving the vehicle with cell phones or enjoying the music system. The technology has taken an unexpected turn and has advanced to replace the drivers. Automakers are developing self-driving cars that enable the car to drive themselves. This system is existing in pre safe and self parking systems. Let us see the technology used behind this type of car operating with less input from the drivers.

Google reveals its first self driving car built from scratch

Google has revealed its fully functioning road legal model of driverless car. The major plan was to make a car that was completely driverless. Due to new rules of California these test cars should have manual controls such as pedals and steering so that a driver can drive if needed. At first glance, the new model looks similar to the model released in May but there are some significant changes. The new one has working headlights. The hump on the car roof houses LIDAR hardware. This new prototype comes with a set of human controls on steering, pedals, wheels, etc. Test vehicles should allow for immediate manual control in order to prevent roads from being flooded with driverless cars.

How driverless cars avoid obstacles on the road

The first company that does serious testing on the consumer oriented self driving car platform is Google. The car of Google uses several advanced hardware. Finding and driving on the road is not enough. It should be able to find and avoid obstacles on the drive way. The driverless car should find obstacles such as cars, cyclists and pedestrians. Google’s car uses detection technologies such as stereo cameras, radar, lasers and sonar devices. Each of these technologies serves different purposes.

The LIDAR or laser remote sensing technology is the heart of detecting the objects. This system uses laser to a range around 100 meters. This system bounces a beam and determines the distance by measuring the reflection. Google uses the velodyne 64 beam laser and it can rotate to 360 degrees. It can make 1.3 million readings in a second and thus making it the versatile sensor of the car. Google also mounts cameras around the car’s exterior. These cameras will help the system in tracking the distance of the objects in real time.

The LIDAR system is not ideal to monitor the nearby car’s speed in real time. Radars are used on the back and front bumper to generate the clean map of the vehicle’s surrounding. The software of Google integrates all data from the remote sensing systems in order to build the map of car’s position.
