The solutions from Cartica AI are designed to accelerate machine learning in the field of object recognition, which will find widespread use in future automotive systems for automated and autonomous driving.
Continental already uses technologies from the field of artificial intelligence for object recognition in advanced driver assistance systems. The sensor data and images are used to identify road traffic objects with the aid of the software in the vehicle control units. The calculation of driving strategy is subsequently based on this environment recognition. Up to now, the corresponding systems for object recognition have had to be manually and extensively trained: every traffic situation and every object on the road first needs to be classified and designated by a human.
This is a very time-consuming and cost-intensive process, especially for safety-relevant applications. With Cartica AI’s AI-based software solution, much less manual input will be required. Here, Continental sees a great opportunity for new vehicle systems from various companies and manufacturers to be prepared for use on the road more quickly.
