Bosch developing autonomous vehicle AI system

We could see autonomous cars on UK roads that can make decisions faster than humans thanks to a new Artificial Intelligence (AI) system that is being developed by Bosch.

The computer “brain” will enable the cars to transfer information they learn via the cloud so that other autonomous vehicles can access it. The technology will help autonomous cars work without the need for outside assistance, even under difficult driving conditions.

This AI technology is expected to go into production by 2020 and will initially be used in driverless Robocabs, which the company is developing alongside Daimler. The “brain” will be able to process 30 trillion computational operations each second, which is three times faster than the human brain can work.

Collect and process data
As the autonomous cars pass data and information back to the base through the cloud, these AI systems can learn new processes to provide smoother, safer and quicker journeys in the future.

Engineers assess the data collected after which it can be accessed by all vehicles that use the system, helping them improve their ability to handle certain traffic situations.

The AI computer will be powered by a chip being produced by Nvidia, while an in-house team at Bosch will create the software algorithms to run on it.

The system will feature several radar, camera and LIDAR sensors that will produce the data, and Bosch says that up to one gigabyte of data can be produced each second. The sensors will provide the car with a 360-degree view, and the AI system will have the capacity to process all of the data the sensors produce at the same time.

This announcement comes as Bosch forecasts 60 per cent growth in radar system sales and 80 per cent growth for video sensors this year.
