Xenos technology will connect the machine to the collective AI robomobilesNovember 18, 2018
The Xenos platform, developed by the Oxford-based company StreetDrone, which specializes in autonomous vehicles, allows automobiles and artificial intelligence systems to communicate with each other.
The combination of software and hardware helps speed up the robotization of cars by offering a safe way to connect machines to autonomous services. The Xenos platform integrates data from the vehicle and its systems with autopilot applications, writes Engineer.
Any car equipped with this platform can be connected to an autonomous network, says Mike Potts, founder and head of StreetDrone. In his opinion, auto companies can prepare their cars for unmanned driving by installing applications on them and making them smart – just like Android and Apple made smart phones.
“I am deeply convinced that people will not buy unmanned vehicles, that these vehicles will operate as part of fleets,” he says.
For the past year and a half, the company has been developing Xenos on a test sample, a Renault Twizy two-seater electric car. With the help of unmanned technology, the car can turn, pick up speed and slow down.
In addition to the applications installed on the on-board computer, the company plans to expand the platform so that it allows you to connect to other cloud applications, for example, to the fleet management system. The main task of SpaceDrone is to develop such a system that would become the standard for uniting robomobiles into a single network under the control of a collective AI.
