Nissan Explains How Human Intelligence Will Ultimately Make Autonomous Cars Work In All Situations

Mon Jun 12, 2017 1:14 am

This is why self driving scares me. ONE source of responsiblity. It has to be the car or the human not both plus I would feel better if in the city core there was not a mix of self driving and human driving. Just self driving in the city core - keep it all apples to apples not apples to peaches and apples to oranges etc.
Manufacturers are doing what they can to bring autonomous cars to market, but even with all that technology, human intelligence will apparently still be needed.

Nissan’s autonomous driving expert recently revealed that there is idea to use a human back-up, in a form similar to air traffic controller-style.

Nissan is working on this project alongside NASA.

How it works is pretty straight forward…although we aren’t sure how it would work in a practical situation.

When the driving conditions are deemed too complicated for computers, a human will remotely support self-driving cars. Then afterwards, that solution will be available in the cloud for other vehicles to follow in similar fashion.

“The buzzword for the technology is ‘Distributed Artificial Intelligence’ in which cars, the Cloud and humans share their intelligence to solve a problem.

Nissan calls it Seamless Autonomous Mobility (SAM) and has been testing its operation on a fleet of disguised prototypes in California, US.”

Maarten Sierhuis, director of the Nissan Research Center and a former NASA engineer said:

“These are like air traffic controllers, they facilitate the flow, rather than control the vehicle remotely with a joystick,”

“These are like air traffic controllers, they facilitate the flow, rather than control the vehicle remotely with a joystick,”
But our air traffic controllers are human not AI
