The capsule is used to simulate visual contact between a pedestrian and a driver

The company Jaguar Land Rover has developed an unmanned capsule with virtual eyes. It is used in the framework of the government program U.K. Autodrive, whose goal is to find out how autonomous cars can reproduce the behavior and reactions of a person when driving. In particular, we are talking about simulating visual contact between a pedestrian and a driver.

According to the engineers, the eyes should demonstrate to the pedestrian that the drone saw him and is going to stop before the transfer. At the same time, a team of cognitive psychologists fixes the level of trust before and after eye contact, determining whether such an imitation can increase the pedestrian’s confidence that the car will stop and miss it.

Earlier it was reported that Land Rover develops autonomous control systems for off-road and heavy weather conditions. In the framework of the CORTEX project, the company plans to create a “five-dimensional” matrix of sensors capable of providing the fourth and fifth level of autonomy. For work, the electronics will use the capabilities of artificial intelligence and machine learning algorithms.

The matrix includes acoustic sensors, cameras, radar, light detectors and laser range finders. The information from them comes to the computing platform, processed in real time and used to build a safe route.
