Driverless cars

  1. 1. Driverless cars<br />
  2. 2. Agenda<br />What is driverless car?<br />Technologies.<br />DARPA grand challenge 2007<br />
  3. 3. What is a driverless car(Robot cars)?<br />is a vehicle that can drive itself from one point to another without assistance from a driver; in other words, with an autopilot system.<br />
  4. 4. In order to drive a car, a system would need to:<br />Sensors<br /> Navigation <br /> Motion planning (traffic)<br /> Actuation (operate the mechanics of the vehicle).<br />
  5. 5. Sensors<br />Sensors employed in driverless cars are called Mobileye N.V.<br />Mobileye offers a wide range of driver safety solutions combining artificial vision image processing, multiple technological applications and information technology<br />
  6. 6. Navigation <br />The ability to plot a route from where the vehicle is to where the user wants to be has been available for several years.<br />The more sophisticated systems also receive radio updates on road blockages, and adapt accordingly<br />
  7. 7. Motion planning<br />is a term used in robotics for the process of detailing a task into discrete motions. <br />It should execute this task while avoiding objects like other cars.<br />
  8. 8. Control of vehicle<br />As automotive technology matures, more and more functions of the underlying engine, gearbox etc. are no longer directly controlled by the driver by mechanical means. <br />It is controlled via a computer, which receives instructions from the driver as inputs and delivers the desired effect by means of electronic throttle control.<br />Therefore, the technology for a computer to control all aspects of a vehicle is well understood.<br />
  9. 9.
  10. 10. DARPA Urban Challenge2007 <br />It is a prize competition for driverless vehicles, funded by the(Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency), the most prominent research organization of the United States Department of Defense.<br />
  11. 11. The purpose of DARPA urban challenge 2007<br />Saving lives on the battlefield<br />(by sending unmanned vehicles). <br />Minimize the probability of accidents in cities.<br />
  12. 12. Tartan racing team The $2 million winner of DARPA urban challenge 2007<br /> The course involved a 96 km to be completed in less than 6 hours<br />Rules included obeying all traffic regulations while negotiating with other traffic and obstacles and merging into traffic.<br />
  13. 13. Thank you“What was called science fiction 5o years ago can be called science fact nowadays.”<br /> MOSTAFA HUSSIEN<br />
