IIT Joins in Building Self Drive Cars
An autonomous car (also known as a driverless car, auto,self–driving car, robotic car) is a vehicle that is capable of sensing its environment and navigating without human input. … Autonomous cars use a variety of techniques to detect their surroundings, such as radar, laser light, GPS, odometry, and computer vision.
Indian technologist do not appear to slow coaches behind Uber and Google, in the global race to deveplop self driving cars, with three top schools harnessing enqineering talent to build solutions for the rugged and chaotic roads in India. Teams at the Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) in Kharaqpur, Kanpur and Bomber now household names in Silicon Valley companies are working on autonomous vehicle solutions or driverless solutions, a project evincing interest from Indian automotive companies.
Things to know:
- IIT Kharagpur students are testing autonomous cars built from scratch within their campus.
- IIT Kanpur too has plans to build its own autonomous vehicle.
- IIT Bombay and Kharagpur are testing this technology on Mahindra’s E 20 to turn it into a driverless car.
- Germany’s Continental is supporting two driverless car-related projects at IIT Bombay.
