One of the biggest challenges is the training of AI systems. How do you test a system that is designed to solve unforeseen problems? Virtual training and software-in-the-loop methods will make a contribution to overcoming this hurdle soon.
On this basis, autonomous vehicles could significantly reduce the number of accidents. Networking the autonomous cars could also result in an intelligent traffic guidance system with a previously unknown level of efficiency, which would ultimately succeed in preventing traffic jams. One day, for example, the artificial intelligence in the car might be able to check the position of the front wheels, the speed of vehicles and the direction of vision of the driver sitting in them – and let the driver who has his turning signal incorrectly set pass through the roundabout with aplomb.
