Driverless cars run by Raspberry Pi

Could a destiny of driverless cars be made by Raspberry Pi? For undergraduate researchers during a University of Cambridge, a answer is a resounding yes!

A swift of driverless cars operative together to keep trade relocating uniformly can urge altogether trade upsurge by during slightest 35 percent, researchers have shown. The researchers, from a University of Cambridge, automatic a tiny swift of tiny robotic cars to expostulate on a multi-lane line and celebrated how a trade upsurge altered when one of a cars stopped.

So long, traffic!

By regulating Raspberry Pis and onboard sensors to module scale-model versions of commercially accessible cars, undergraduate researchers have built a swift of driverless cars that ‘talk to any other’. They did this since they are study how driverless record can assistance revoke trade incidents on a roads.

The researchers investigated how a automobile stalled on a multi-lane line affects a buildup of traffic, and how communication between driverless cars can forestall these buildups.

When a cars acted exclusively of any other, a stalled automobile caused other vehicles in a same line to delayed or stop in sequence to combine into a adjacent lane. This shortly led to queues combining along a track. But when a cars communicated around Raspberry Pis, they could tell any other about obstacles on a track, and this authorised cars to change lanes with a team-work of other highway users.

The researchers recently presented their paper on a theme during the International Conference on Robotics and Automation (ICRA 2019) in Montréal, Canada. You can find links to their results, and some-more information, on a University of Cambridge blog.
