An impressive video demonstration was just released by Drive.ai showing the progress of its self-driving vehicle technology.
In the video, Drive.ai's autonomous car handles realistic hazards faced by everyday commuters like four-way stops, nighttime traffic, and rainy roads.
The test was run in Mountain View, Calif. and utilized the company's deep learning algorithms to overcome common pitfalls of automated driving - primarily confusing reflections and glare from incoming traffic during wet or dark conditions.
Drive.ai also points out a few other standout moments in its demonstration video, including navigating a narrow lane 30 seconds in, successfully avoiding a car after getting cut off at the one minute mark, and supposedly even understanding a broken red light at 1:50.
Though Drive.ai didn't announce any plans of when to expect its tech to arrive on the market, this demo shows the group hasn't been slacking off - especially as competitors such as Google, Uber, Nvidia and Tesla all race to make autonomous driving the new normal on the road.
