Learn how the brains of autonomous vehicles work with this easy-to-understand (and free) article
I am often asked by engineers who are not experts on autonomous vehicles exactly how the semiconductor systems in a car work as the brains of an autonomous system. A follow-up question is usually about vendors' current products and market trends.
I often start of by describing the current state-of-the-art in advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS), the importance of functional safety standards for these systems, and then talk about the technology gap we need to traverse to be able to create fully autonomous systems. I invariable end up babbling incoherently in a flurry of abbreviations and acronyms: NHTSA, ISO 26262, SEooC, V2I, CNN, etc.
