New paper from AI experts explores the topic "Will autonomous vehicles ever be safe?"
Digica, an international software solutions company working at the forefront of the Artificial Intelligence, builds cloud, IOT and embedded systems solutions for a range of industries, including automotive. As part of their work into driverless vehicles, they have produced a white paper with the team at DiSTI (HMI and virtual maintenance training experts) that examines the current state of technology and predicts what impact this will have on the development of autonomous vehicles, particularly with regards to safety.
The rigorous standards used for the development of traditional vehicle software become even more important when applied in driverless vehicles. The need for functional safety is clear when applied to components such as braking systems, but how does this manifest itself in the development of user interfaces in the vehicle? If a car is driving without human interaction, is there the same need for a user interface? What is the requirement for functional safety for infotainment when running in mixed criticality environments?
These questions and more will be answered in the new white paper, "Will autonomous vehicles ever be safe?", downloadable from the Digica website.
