Testing of a prototype technical vision for driverless vehicles will take place before the end of the year, according to the National Technical Initiative Platform (NTI). The software package is implemented on the chassis of the Toyota Prius.
The key requirement for the system is the ability to select objects of interest in the video stream and monitor them without operator participation. At the same time, it must independently build digital terrain maps and plot a route, including in the absence of satellite navigation signals.
According to the developers, the software complex uses neural network technologies that can improve the quality of data processing in the presence of noise in the image, with a complex shape of objects, changing exposure, partial or complete obstruction of the object. The monitoring algorithms will allow autonomous vehicles to adapt to various driving situations, including bad weather and off-road conditions.
