We will try to create a self-driving vehicle using minimal hardware, shifting the focus from sophisticated hardware to an algorithmic approach.

Why?

One of the greatest challenges many artificial intelligence projects face (specifically deep learning related projects) is the high costs associated with hardware. Consider, for example, Google’s self-driving car: this car makes use of the expensive LIDAR radar system, and as such is an unrealistic option for many private organizations.
In our research, we will try to create a self-driving vehicle using minimal hardware, shifting the focus from sophisticated hardware to an algorithmic approach. This has a number of advantages:

  • Costs go down significantly (from millions to thousands)
  • The system learns how to function in a more abstract environment, which means the algorithms may be reused for other types of vehicles

Using a new learning method in the field of deep learning, we aim to create an A.I. that pilots a boat using only the feed of five affordable cameras. In a later stage, the system could be trained to drive other vehicles as well.
