Kommt die künstliche Intelligenz noch vor dem autonomen Fahrzeug zum Einsatz?
Everyone might be focusing on making cars drive themselves, but artificial intelligence will play a large role in the future, as well. TechCrunch took a look at ways AI could be incorporated into cars and the list is a lengthy one with many possible avenues. What Cameras Can Do From The InsideThe first place where you might be able to find artificial intelligence on your next new car is in the inward-facing camera. At the moment, automakers use cameras that face drivers as a way of preventing accidents. As the outlet points out, inward-facing cameras with AI are used in commercial vehicles to look out for things that could potentially lead to an incident – drowsiness, fatigue, inebriation, and distractions. When paired with advanced driver assistance systems, inward-facing AI cameras have also been shown to reduce insurance costs for commercial vehicles that are part of a fleet, states TechCrunch. While commercial vehicles may be some of the only cars on the road to have inward-facing cameras with artificial intelligence, the technology is beginning to spread to consumer vehicles. The outlet states that cameras with artificial intelligence have started to help locate pets and children that are left in cars. This aids in preventing heat-related deaths, which, on average, result in approximately 37 deaths in the United States every year. Safety may be a major reason for the implementation of artificial intelligence into cameras at the moment, but they’ll also play a major role in autonomous vehicles. In driverless machines, smart cameras can be used to detect the number of passengers in a vehicle and whether they’ve put their seatbelts on. The cameras, as TechCrunch points out, could also help passengers ensure that they don’t lose their purse or wallet when exiting the machine. That doesn’t mean that cameras with AI won’t help make autonomous cars safer. The cameras, as the outlet claims, could help reduce an accident’s severity. In addition to making sure that passengers are wearing their seatbelts, sensors could help the cameras estimate each passenger’s body size and calibrate a unique way for the airbags to deploy in an optimal fashion.
