Unmanned KAMAZ in the near future will be able to see and understand the way as it makes a man, thanks to technology companies Cognitive Technologies. In the development of artificial intelligence to control unmanned KAMAZ applied the principle of foveal vision of man, so the road will clearly differ only in the center of your vision and the image will be blurred at the periphery. Reported, that the truck will have the new opportunities scan the surrounding reality, which will allow him to “see” the world just as we see it.
This technology helps the car to focus only on road objects and features of the roads that are important for movement. Special software is building a zone of interest, which forms a “virtual tunnel”. As a result, it processed only 5-7% of the captured video. This allows you to quickly and accurately respond to the traffic situation.
The prototype is ready, equipped with radars, lidar, video cameras, communication systems and on-board computer system. The unmanned truck, if all goes according to plan, will be ready by 2020, that is, on its development will take exactly five years. But if the US drones passenger cars and crossovers get into accidents and banal “blunt” at intersections, one can imagine, that might do an unmanned truck.
