AI for Autonomous Vehicles

One of the things that gets left out much of the time about autonomous vehicles is a discussion of what might actually make such things feasible: artificial intelligence (AI). Sure, the sensors and the actuators and the processors are all integral, but it is going to require something that will have greater situational awareness in order to pull it off. "Drivers deal with an infinitely complex world," said Jen-Hsun Huang, co-founder and CEO, NVIDIA ( So when there’s no driver, then there needs to be something that can deal with this infinite complexity.

The latest release of NX from Siemens PLM Software features an adaptive user interface built on artificial intelligence and machine learning, which dynamically update the NX user interface based on a prediction of the next steps in a workflow. This level of personalization can improve overall NX usage and ultimately lead to higher productivity and more efficient product development. Design

Adopting new technology in design and manufacturing is usually a series of baby steps. Artificial intelligence and machine learning are no different.

Autonomous Vehicle for the Factory

Although this may not seem like much, it is actually an advanced, sensor-equipped, artificial intelligence running. . . autonomous vehicle (AV): However, this development, the MiR1000 is designed for use in factories, not on limited-access highways.

SEAT, IBM & Watson

One more thing about SEAT after yesterday’s announcement at the Mobile World Congress about its Minimó micromobility vehicle: Today it and IBM announced that the companies are developing the “Mobility Advisor,” a mobile app that will run on 4G/5G networks and utilize IBM Watson AI technology.

ZF and the Development of Tech for Autonomy

As executive vp with global operational responsibility for the Global Electronics business and Occupant Safety Systems businesses within the ZF Active and Passive Safety Technology division of the ZF Group, Christophe Marnat has his proverbial plate full, especially nowadays when there are burgeoning efforts on behalf of OEMs and suppliers like ZF to develop the technologies that are related to ADAS, all the way to the point of providing Level 4 or Level 5 technology.

FCA Adds ADAS Capability to Chelsea

It seems that FCA is now taking things more seriously as regards the development of advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS), all the way to fully autonomous: it has announced that it has invested more than $30-million at its Chelsea Proving Grounds, which is about an hour-and-a-half southwest of the FCA US headquarters in Auburn Hills, Michigan.

Realizing Autonomy

The auto industry is at a place the likes of which it hasn’t been for about 100 years.  It's a place where technological forces are transforming what has largely been a mechanical paradigm to one wherein sensors and algorithms are essential.
