Tech companies such as Intel and Google and major car corporations, including Toyota, are sending cars in to real world driving situations to “learn” how to avoid accidents. And the developments are timely, as some European countries – Spain for example – are drawing up lists of guidelines on restrictions that over-65s may face on their driving licences in the not-to-distance future. These include limits on mileage per journey, speed, driving on motorways and driving at night depending on medical condition. A fully trained car could come to the rescue. Scientists are working on deep-learning frameworks which will evolve today’s semi-autonomous cars into self-driving vehicles that can handle all traffic scenarios, in all environments, by learning from experience rather than being pre-programmed for every eventuality. Deep-learning frameworks is a form…
