Hyundai Seeks Data for Autonomous Cars

Gathering Data and Footage from Fleet

Hyundai has lodged an application for a mechanism meant to allow upcoming autonomous vehicles to more precisely prophesy the movements of other road users. CarBuzz identified the patent, submitted with the US Patent and Trademark Office.

The original patent claims of November 2019 have been modified on two occasions as Hyundai’s self-governing mechanisms evolve and are attainable in multiple production models.

To precisely calculate what other motorists are likely to do in any given situation, Hyundai needs to establish a colossal repository of information obtained from autonomous vehicles. Autonomous vehicles typically come with a variety of sensors and devices, such as LiDAR, cameras, or all of them combined.

This technology is then employed to generate a simulated environment which the automobile will react to. A primary illustration of this is the sensors that are fitted onto the forefront of the Hyundai Ioniq 5 which are responsible for triggering forward impact prevention and managing the intelligent cruise control.

Hyundai posits that traditional forecasting calculations are based entirely on the use of stationary cameras, unmanned aerial vehicles, social conventions, particular circumstances (such as a pedestrian crossing), and semantic research. The automobile manufacturer insists that more is necessary in order to bring into being an independent, driving system with a degree of situational consciousness on par with that of a human.

Hyundai is striving to reach the mental capacity of a human being, and thus they require access to visual and moving information obtained by autonomous vehicles. To elaborate, what Hyundai wants is recordings from your car as well as other automobiles, and how they interact with each other. In a fixed timeline, the self-driving car will accumulate enormous amounts of video and data. It should be noted that this kind of data necessitates lots of space; this is why Hyundai has proposed a designated storage unit inside the vehicle that would not interact with the ECU. A single self-driving car, if appropriately set up with cameras, is capable of able to garner a terabyte of data on a daily basis.

An immense volume of information can be utilized for devising the ultimate algorithm for human capability, setting up a neural network for all Hyundai autos that have access to it.

It doesn’t appear that this technology will be implemented in consumer vehicles anytime soon, primarily due to the magnitude of information that Hyundai has to gather from present vehicles. This will create a ‘neural network’, formed by a neural networking processor and a localization data set. Once complete, this system will have the capability to generate thinking and prediction similar to those of humans, connecting to the anticipated autos.

Visually, it is plain to observe that the ego car is capable of recognize distinct circumstances that might not be comprehended by algorithms formulated using only still cameras and social regulations.

Hyundai clusters outer entities into various classifications, beginning with automobile and individual behavior.

The vehicle should be able to discern whether a car is out of order or somebody is feverishly unloading a truck. It should also detect if a person is running, bouncing fervently, standing and conversing at the phone or preparing to traverse the road in either an authorized or unauthorized way. Moreover, it has the capability to approximate the age of the human being and gauge potential reactions they can perform in particular circumstances. For instance, a kid haphazardly sprinting into the street right after a ball is a clear scenario which, in principle, the vehicle should be capable of foreseeing.

It’s an exhilarating patent and another stride towards attaining Level 5 self-driving. Once Hyundai grasps what they remember to be of equal intelligence to a human (which is not very difficult nowadays), they should also be prepared to accept accountability for their automobile’s actions, which appears to be a discrepancy for just about each automotive manufacturer apart from Mercedes-Benz.

Regarding the perpetual discourse concerning privacy, before accessing huge amounts of data, Hyundai will have to solicit authorization. We strongly believe that early patrons would be pleased to enroll in this program which is much more favorable than Tesla’s practice of employing the entire globe as their own individual impact testing area.
