ZMP RoboCar ditches driver, creates personal map (video)
How does a self-driving automotive know the place it is going? Through the use of a map, in fact — ideally a self-generated one. In yet one more video exemplifying breakneck golf-cart-like speeds, the ZMP RoboCar exhibits us that it does not want a driver to know the place it is going. A minimum of, not the second time it goes there. After a couple of minutes with a fleshy good friend behind the wheel, the autonomous vehicle can safely steer itself round curves, roundabouts, and fountains. It might not be capable of maintain tempo with Google’s tire-squealing, automated Prius, however no less than we all know it might see the place it is going.
