PowerPoint Presentation: GOOGLE DRIVERLESS CAR Presented By: Anish K Michael. Santhikrishna S G. CONTENT :: CONTENT : Introduction. History. Components Action. Conclusion. 5/22/2012 2 Google Driverless Car INTRODUCTION:: INTRODUCTION : The Google Driverless Car is like any car, but: It can steer itself while looking out for obstacles. It can accelerate itself to the correct speed limit. It can stop and go itself based on any traffic condition. It can take its passengers anywhere it wants to go safely, legally, and comfortably. 5/22/2012 3 Google Driverless Car HISTORY:: HISTORY : The project is currently being led by: Sebastian Thrun Director of the Stanford Artificial Intelligence Laboratory 2005 DARPA Grand Challenge Winner Co-inventor of Google Street View 5/22/2012 4 Google Driverless Car COMPONENTS:: COMPONENTS: Integrates Google Maps with various hardware sensors and artificial intelligence software Google Maps Provides the car with road information Hardware Sensors Provides the car with real time environment conditions Artificial Intelligence Provides the car with real time decisions 5/22/2012 5 Google Driverless Car GOOGLE MAP:  : GOOGLE MAP: Speed Limits. Upcoming intersections. Traffic Report. Nearby collisions. Directions. Google Maps interacts with GPS and acts like a database. 5/22/2012 6 Google Driverless Car PowerPoint Presentation: HARDWARE SENSORS: The hardware sensors gives real time environmental properties. Environment is dynamic so need real time results. Sensors attempt to create fully observable environment. 5/22/2012 7 Google Driverless Car HARDWARE SENSORS:: HARDWARE SENSORS: LIDAR VIDEO CAMERA POSITION ESTIMATOR DISTANCE SENSOR 5/22/2012 8 Google Driverless Car PowerPoint Presentation: 5/22/2012 Google Driverless Car 9 LIDAR: LIDAR “Heart of our system“ LIDAR (Light Detection And Ranging, also LADAR) is an optical remote sensing technology that can measure the distance to, or other properties of a target by illuminating the target with light , often using pulses from a laser . Scanning distance of 60 meters (~197 feet) 5/22/2012 10 Google Driverless Car PowerPoint Presentation: VIDEO CAMERA Detects upcoming traffic light. DISTANCE SENSOR Allow the car to "see" far enough to detect nearby or upcoming cars or obstacles POSITION ESTIMATOR(Wheel Encoder ) Determines vehicle's location and keeps  track of its movements. 5/22/2012 11 Google Driverless Car ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE:: ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE: Google Maps and the hardware sensors data are sent to the AI. AI then determines: how fast to accelerate when to slow down/stop when to steer the wheel Goal of AI The agent's goal is to take the passenger to its desired destination safely and legally 5/22/2012 12 Google Driverless Car LET'S SEE IT IN ACTION!: LET'S SEE IT IN ACTION! A look from the inside... A look from the outside... 5/22/2012 13 Google Driverless Car CURRENTLY. : CURRENTLY . As of 2012: Nevada 1st state to allow driverless vehicles can be legally operated on public roads 6 Google Driverless Cars 5 Toyota Prius 1 Audi TT Total miles 140,000 miles with occasional human intervention 5/22/2012 14 Google Driverless Car CONCLUSION:: CONCLUSION: Very useful . Vehicles could be ready for market in as little as three to five years. 5/22/2012 15 Google Driverless Car THANK YOU…: THANK YOU… 5/22/2012 16 Google Driverless Car
