Moscow-based Cognitive Technologies said it is ready to release a pre-commercial version of an advance driver assistance system with artificial intelligence, or ADAS, for Russia’s KAMAZ truck.
ADAS qualifies as Level 1, according to the Society of Automotive Engineers, which means that it can detect road signs and warn about a possible collision with another vehicle or pedestrians, while easily changing lanes. This is only the beginning and the system will be improved.
Level 2 ADAS assists a driver with the control system, including braking and staying in the same lane. The SAE standard has six levels of automation, from fully manual operation (level 0) to a fully driverless vehicle (level 5).
“We plan to release the complete version of Level 1 ADAS by early next year,” said Olga Uskova, the CEO of Cognitive Technologies.
“It will be a prototype that can be industrially produced at the end of 2017.”
Cognitive Technologies and KAMAZ launched the project in Feb. 2015 and their goal is to create a fully driverless truck by 2020. The company’s system seeks to provide automatic operation of transport in all weather conditions and to be able to recognize pedestrians wherever they might be.
The time allotted to detect danger and respond will be no more than 0.3 seconds. Also, the system will be able to detect practically any obstacle, including animals.
