Psychic Robots Can Prevent Car Accidents Using Artificial Intelligence

Researchers have created a “psychic robot” that can predict how people will maneuver in order to help them not get into an accident. The robots are less “psychic” and more “smart” since they use artificial intelligence software and technology. “We call it a psychic robot,” said Justin Horowitz, a researcher at the University of Illinois at Chicago. “If you know how someone is moving and what the disturbance is, you can tell the underlying intent.” Essentially, the software works by predicting how a movement will end and help prevent an accident by taking over the car’s control and steering it to safety. “If we hit a patch of ice and the car starts swerving, we want the car to know where we meant to go,” said Horowitz. “It needs to…
