An autonomous vehicle needs to be able to answer a few basic questions. To start with, the self-driving car needs to know its own location. It also needs to know its destination. And, while getting to its destination the car needs to be aware of its surroundings, both static as well as dynamic components. In doing so, the vehicle picks up information about the surroundings using cameras, LIDARs, radars, ultrasonic sensors. This information is then acted upon by algorithms which help navigate the vehicle.
We at Wipro take pride in developing world-class safety compliant algorithms in the space of perception, localization and mapping, sensor fusion, trajectory planners to enable an AV’s unhindered movement through varying scenarios.
ADAS features ranging from the basic level 1 emergency braking to features as complex as automated valet parking and smart summons are already part of the gamut of the ‘straight out of Sci-Fi movies’ features that our AV has. The features list targets not just safety but also in car experience of the riders, making it a comfortable carefree journey.
