Singapore-based Old startup "nut economics" has taken the limelight from companies like Google and Apple, Ford and GM, Uber and Lyft-nut economics has launched the world's first
Taxi service last week
Singapore-based transportation and automotive technology company was founded by Karl Iagnemma and Emilio Frazzoli, two researchers at MIT, with 50 doctoral scholars and experienced
ET is out there talking to start-ups leaders and experts about how driverless taxis work and how they will work in the future.
"We look at the world using state-of-the-art laser sensors, radar and high-definition cameras," Doug Parker, chief operating officer of nut Economics, told ET in an email interview.
"We use algorithms developed by two founders of our founders, who have worked together at MIT for ten years, and we put them into action through precise low-level control," Parker added . ".
Currently, two models have been launched in nuonomy. -
Renault Zoe and mizubischMiEV --
The public can use the app to cheer.
The driving area is limited and for safety, a force driver and a computer engineer will oversee the initial testing phase of the vehicle.
The general outline of how a driverless car works is: The car uses GPS to determine the simplest route to reach any given destination, and a bunch of sensors and cameras determine the road conditions, advanced central computer systems compile and process data from sensors and control every movement of the vehicle.
But every company is trying. “Google’s self-
Using LiDAR (
Light sensing radar
Remote Sensing Technology evaluates the environment and measures the distance between cars, "said Kannan Sivasubramanian, executive vice president, Aranca, a global research and analysis company.
"Tesla, on the other hand, uses a self-driving system based on single-eye forward-looking camera technology from Mobileye.
Jerusalem-based Mobileye uses sophisticated visual algorithms to avoid collisions.
What about India?
There is a big problem, unpredictable, is the lack of rules.
"The key is whether you can predict the movement patterns of everything on the road.
In India, the model becomes more complex, "said Dr. Roshy John, practice director at Tata Consulting Services (TCS)
Earlier this year, he designed a working prototype of an unmanned Tata Nano.
"As human beings, we understand whether a person will cross the road through eye contact.
"The self-driving vehicle has no eye contact with the person," he added . ".
"Driverless cars are not feasible in the cities we have.
Smart cities can be used when they happen in India, "said Parna Ghosh, chief information officer of CNH Industrial Group, India, Southeast Asia and Japan.
For now, however, automakers and technology companies will continue to drive driverless cars.
"First, the automotive industry is expected to grow from traditional cars to connected cars to semi-connected cars.
Autonomous, finally complete-
Self-driving cars, all in 10-
15 years, "said Olivier Le Frick, a spokesman for Faurecia, one of the largest auto parts manufacturers, working with automakers around the world to design what it calls
For example, Audi, the German carmaker, said it was driving driverless cars on highways and other terrain.
"From 2017, we will soon launch the Audi A8, which will master the driving and driving parking of 60 kilometers per hour.
I believe we will be fully autonomous by 2025 . "
Rupert Stadler, chairman of Audi's management committee.
"Audi tomorrow will be a place to work, a place to relax, a place to enjoy.
We call it 25 hours at Audi, "added Stadler.
