In the panel discussion at #BCTECH Summit, Autonomous Vehicles: Are We Ready, Timothy Burr, Director of Public Policy at Lyft says, "The Lyft platform is all about connecting drivers and passengers. We are now live across 95% of the U.S. We are now doing well over a million rides a day. Our dual strategy for the testing and deployment of Autonomous technology includes partnering with companies like GM (NYSE:GM), Ford (NYSE:F), Jaguar, Land Rover that are developing autonomous technology. We are partnering with them so they can deploy that technology onto the Lyft platform. And the other side of our Autonomous strategy is that we are developing our own self-driving system."
He also went on to tell the audience, "You can do this now on the Lyft platform. In Vegas you can pull out your Lyft App and experience this technology. And we just announced we are ramping up to 30 cars."
Kenny Hawk, CEO of Mojio, also on the #BCTECH Summit panel said. "It's coming; we just have to make it safe. The time when this shift is going to happen is when it's much better than a human. Look at the adoption of Alexa; disclosure Amazon (NasdaqGS:AMZN) is an investor. Alexa is loved by people because it is finally good enough that it can actually understand what you are talking about. Every voice technology before that was not quite there. With Autonomous driving if you aren't quite there, you are killing someone."
Dr. Danny Rittman, CTO of Gopher Protocol Inc. (OTCQB: GOPH) weighs in on the subject and shares his expertise. He discusses how artificial intelligence can play a key role in safety for Autonomous Vehicles technology and some of the applications his company is working on. Danny advises, "One of the main issues in the driving of autonomous cars is the identification of the car's geo-location and secondly trying to provide a quick answer to obstacles and incidents that are unexpected and interrupting the driving. The AI system is supposed to provide an on the fly solution. This is a very unique challenge."
He went on to say, "Currently, Gopher Protocol offers a few technologies to address this that we have already tested quite successfully. One is our geo-location system. Gopher owns and has developed and is still developing a geo-location system that is based on GPS technology but does not depend on GPS. That means if anything interrupting the GPS transmission occurs, the system immediately kicks in its own proprietary radio based system which is supporting or replacing the GPS system. So at any point in time, our autonomous car will know where it is and also identify conditions and objects on the road. Our other advantage is our AI system that is constantly connecting to many data base sources and collecting data as it goes."
