Self Driving Vehicles and Risk Analysis

Overview

Guidance, Navigation, and Control (GN&C) systems take data from the environment to create a mathematical representation of the system state. The system’s guidance solution is then determined from this navigation solution and is typically a minimization of some objective weight function, J. This objective function is a time, cost, weight, or other physically realizable quantity. We show a method to create a guidance solution based upon system risk for a system’s goal. The methodology presented uses a goal to create a situation. The situation assessment creates a situation model whose risk can be determined. This risk assessment can then be learned by pattern recognition systems to make decision on how to control a vehicle. This is begun by looking at how to transfer knowledge of a lower complexity problem into increasingly more complicated control problems. Using this method, work has been done to develop a small robotic car to drive autonomously between "lane lines" using only visual information.

Intel's compilers may or may not optimize to the same degree for non-Intel microprocessors for optimizations that are not unique to Intel microprocessors. These optimizations include SSE2, SSE3, and SSSE3 instruction sets and other optimizations. Intel does not guarantee the availability, functionality, or effectiveness of any optimization on microprocessors not manufactured by Intel. Microprocessor-dependent optimizations in this product are intended for use with Intel microprocessors. Certain optimizations not specific to Intel microarchitecture are reserved for Intel microprocessors. Please refer to the applicable product User and Reference Guides for more information regarding the specific instruction sets covered by this notice.
