Self-driving car Seems like an idea that is always a few years away from reality. But perhaps we are not looking closely enough.
According to the two women, commercialization efforts are leading the way Autonomous vehicles, The technology has come to a good and real sense এবং and although it may be limited to certain niches for the time being, they believe that it may become much more common in the next few years.
Aubrey Donnellan is a co-founder and chief operating officer Bear Flag Robotics, Which restores the tractor to autonomy.
Kelman and Donnellan WIRED Staff spoke with the author Arian Marshall A. Wire headquarters at CES, A virtual event that explores standout gadgets, technologies and ideas on the show at Giant Trade Events.
“It’s already here – that’s good news,” Donnellan was asked Self-propelled vehicles Will finally arrive. “We’ve been on the market for a few years now.”
Open fields present fewer challenges for autonomous vehicles than on busy roads, and so limited size autonomy has become a feature of tractors in recent years. Donlan says he hopes his company will make more tractors autonomous in the next few years.
Bear flag The farm equipment was acquired by giant John Deere In august. Dereo Has announced its own fully autonomous tractor At CES, which may persuade more farmers to deploy robots in their fields.
Lyft, which offers self-driving rides in Vegas in partnership with Autonomous Vehicle Company Dynamic, Has shown that autonomy works in limited circumstances, Kelman says. There Lyft users can sometimes call an autonomous vehicle using the same app they use for other rides. Kelman said the company has completed more than 100,000 autonomous rides and plans to expand the offer in 2023 with a dedicated self-driving taxi service as well as more deployments in other locations.
“What we’re going to see is a serious start next year,” Kelman said. But autonomy cannot be found everywhere at once. “It’s going to happen over time in pockets, in certain cities, in certain weather conditions, at certain times of the day.”
Lift said in April that it would Its self-driving assistant sales Level 5 to Weven Planet, a Toyota subsidiary, but the company still has a product team dedicated to supporting autonomous driving, and continues to work on technology with other companies.
Both Kelman and Donlan say understanding how people interact with autonomy will be important to guarantee both security and successful adoption. “The companies that are doing this, which are the price of their salt, are kind of sarcastically putting people at the center of their robotic innovation,” Donellan said.
According to Kelman, companies working with self-driving cars can learn from each other, not just from success in other industries, such as agriculture. He noted that dynamic shares are data collected from autonomous driving with other companies. He says the approach, which is gaining momentum in Europe, could accelerate the development of technology.
