How Self-Driving Cars Predict What’s Going to Happen Next
In a busy area with no lane markings, how does a self-driving vehicle predict what the pedestrians and vehicles around it will do? Watch as the Argo AI self-driving system (SDS) identifies, classifies, tracks, and predicts dozens of static and dynamic objects in this complex urban scene.
To drive like a safe human driver, or “naturalistically” as we call it, the SDS predicts the actions of pedestrians and vehicles all around it, up to 10 times per second. This enables the vehicle trajectory to update rapidly based on changing conditions.
