Toyota is finally ready to introduce its first autonomous car Lexus LS 600HL. It will surely help the company in improving its other autonomous systems.
The company’s research institute TRI (Toyota Research Institute) has installed LIDAR, radar and camera system in the car. The aim was to sharply decrease the dependency on high-definition and sometimes complicated maps.
Reportedly, this technology is soon to take over a huge part in the development of TRI’s two research projects – Chauffeur and Guardian.
The former is a fully autonomous technology for level 4 which is restricted to certain areas only; however, level 5 can be used in any landscape.
On the other hand, Guardian is a system that gives the driver information about the immediate hazards. It alerts the driver what potentially could obstruct him/her by taking information from the context. In case, the system feels necessary, it takes control. This is the reason the company is hopeful of the Guardian’s fastest and efficient deployment at a massive level.
The company has not limited such a hazard warning alert to this system only. Other systems like Automatic Emergency Breaking also involves it.
In fact, the company has ingested billion dollars in establishing AI technology for automobiles and domestically used robotics. The program – approach to AI- was started in 2015 by TRI and conducted a variety of tests to actualize a pragmatic technology in the daily lives.
