AI-equipped self-driving cars a spotlight at WAIC
Artificial intelligence-equipped self-driving cars have purred into the spotlight during the World Artificial Intelligence Conference yesterday, giving visitors and participants the chance to take a ride in them and experience the world of driverless vehicles.
The self-driving cars use camera, radar and a light detection and ranging system called LiDAR to start the vehicles which travel along a planned route in an autonomous driving experience area of the WAIC event. The vehicles can also turn left or right on their own, and interact with traffic lights and are able to decide whether they need to stop.
Besides self-driving cars, automobile companies are also displaying their self-driving trucks, driverless sweeper vehicles and self-driving sightseeing vehicles.
