Autopilot Cars and Systems

Decent Essays

Through the use of autopilot cars, we believe we can significantly decrease fossil fuel emissions, by reducing the wastage of gas through human error, and to decrease traffic.

An autopilot system mostly used in aircraft, boast, spacecraft, missiles, and others. Main component for this system is known as self-steering gear. This system manages the trajectory of such vehicle without any hands-on control by human beings. In that, autopilot can replace human resources and control the vehicle. This allows humans to be less stressful and requires less concentration on driving vehicles.

Cars already have “autopilot”; some cars can operate self-parallel parking system; other cars have cruise function, which accelerates the cars and keeps them at a certain speed without using the gas pedal. For long drives on the highway, people use this autopilot system readily. This is a starting point to implement this autopilot system to our cars. Many improvements are on progress.

Nowadays, autopilot system has made remarkable achievements. An autonomous car, also known as a driverless car, is a representative vehicle capable of fulfilling the human transportation capabilities of a tradition car, which has adopted autopilot system. An autonomous car senses its environment with special techniques such as radar, lidar, GPS, and computer vision. Especially, a car interprets sensory information to identify appropriate navigation paths, as well as obstacles and relevant signs. Upon these
