Audi is applying innovative processes to enable Audi Piloted driving programs to actually learn on the go to ever improve their functionality and efficiency.
Audi is bringing the future of autonomous driving into the present day. Just a few months ago, the luxury automobile company invited a group of journalists on a remarkable ride in a unique A7 model powered by the Audi Piloted Driving technology from Silicon Valley to the International Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, NV. The car successfully reached its destination and set off a flurry of excitement surrounding autonomous driving technology.
Advanced Learning Capabilities
Part of what drives the success of Audi Piloted Driving is a dedication to remaining at the forefront of innovation. Audi designers and engineers are not only searching for the best ways to implement autonomous driving capabilities; they are also searching for ways to ensure the technology itself is continually improving. Rather than creating a fixed information processing system, Audi engineers have created a way for the program behind Audi Piloted Driving to continue to fine tune its understanding and recognition of the world around it.
Similar to the way a baby learns, Audi Piloted Driving is constantly updating its database of information and object recognition. Just as a baby learns to distinguish shapes into different categories and subcategories, the Audi Piloted Driving technology continually updates its recognition capabilities to fine-tune its abilities so it becomes more and more familiar with the world around you. Audi engineers refer to this process as “deep learning” and state that it is at the core of their goal to create a commercially available vehicle that can drive to any destination with minimal human direction.
Audi Engineers Moving Forward
For now, Audi is continuing to perfect the program through ongoing design studies and tests. Every effort is being made to increase the intelligence, safety, and efficiency of the system. In order to run correctly, the data must be gathered, transmitted, processed, and analyzed nearly instantaneously just as the human brain would do. This information must also be stored in a processor directly in the vehicle. While all of these requirements present unique challenges and opportunities for the Audi design team, the group is positive about the future and excited to share their ongoing successes and advancements as they move towards the not-so-distant reality of a commercially available vehicle.
