Automotive Automotive Machine Learning

Automotive Machine Learning (AML) is a powerful technology that allows vehicles to be semi-autonomous with self-driving capabilities. It is a vital tool in the automotive industry, as it enables cars to understand their environment and make decisions accordingly. As designers, AML can provide us with the opportunity to create vehicles that can make decisions and act autonomously in various situations. For example, it can be used to power cars that can navigate through complex environments, detect and recognize objects, and respond to changing conditions. AML can also be used to power predictive models that can predict the behaviour of other vehicles, pedestrians, and even animals. This allows us to create vehicles that can anticipate and react to potential hazards quickly and safely.
