The Terminator

Make No Mistakes

Analyzing AI technology under the safety standard ISO 26262, we know that, unlike humans, AI will interpret unknown situations in weird and unforeseeable ways. BetterAI will recognize unknown situations, unknown things, and others doing something unknown. In any of these situations, BetterAI will show your driverless car the safest move to gracefully adapt to the unknown.

Let’s look at some examples.

Edge Case Recognition

A perception AI that has never seen a skater before does not have a chance to identify them correctly. The AI might predict a person standing aside, which the driverless car would understand as safe to pass by.

Our perception AI can understand the fact that a situation is unknown and even point out the unknown object or unknown behaviour. With this information, the driverless car would understand that in this situation, is not safe to proceed.

So, what’s the way out of an unknown situation?

Adapting to the Unknown

Our perception AI can understand the fact that a situation is unknown, but if the unknown object or unknown behaviour is sufficiently similar to something known, our AI will know. Our AI knows bicyclists, and with the information, that the skater and their motion is similar to a bicyclist, the driverless car can proceed safely.
