Energy-efficient Co-Pilot for trucks
We are making long haul trucking safer and more fuel efficient by developing an AI-powered Advanced Driver Assistance System (AIDAS). The system includes camera hardware mounted to the vehicle and a processing unit that can control the vehicle's brake, throttle and steering while under the supervision of a driver, augmenting their skills but not replacing them. Our key insight is that there is a 30% difference in fuel efficiency between the best and worst truck drivers. By training our AI ADAS system how to drive from data provided by the best drivers, the AIDAS can improve the efficiency of all drivers.
