Aerodrive Celerio: The First Self Driving Car In India
An autonomous car (also known as a driverless car, self-driving car, robotic car) and the unmanned ground vehicle is a vehicle that is capable of sensing its environment and navigating without human input.Many such systems are evolving, but as of 2017, no cars permitted on public roads were fully autonomous. They all require a human at the wheel who must be ready to take control at any time.
Autonomous cars use a variety of techniques to detect their surroundings, such as radar, laser light, GPS, odometry and computer vision. Advanced control systems interpret sensory information to identify appropriate navigation paths, as well as obstacles and relevant signage.Autonomous cars must have control systems that are capable of analyzing sensory data to distinguish between different cars on the road.
Aerodrive has a voice recognition software which fires the K10 engine with a ‘START ENGINE’ voice command.There is no steering wheel in the car. A $2000 joystick is used to engage autonomous driving mode by pulling back and toggling a switch to select the autonomous mode.Aerodrive has a limited speed to 25kph as doesn’t have the capability to stop. It also has a manual mode. Push and pull movements of the super-sensitive joystick are to accelerate and brake, while side movements steer the vehicle. The Aerodrive Celerio navigates itself quite easily and precisely. It also has Pedestrian Detection Control (PDC) in which the camera picks up the pedestrian and signals Central Processing Unit (CPU) to bring the car to a gentle stop.
