What is autonomous systems?
I have always been interested in new technologies and once decided to become an engineer since innovation is the lifeblood of business. After my engineering degree, I developed an interested for future mobility solutions and accomplished a Master of Logistics & Transportation.
Pointing out the obvious, technology is the sum of techniques, skills, methods, and processes used in the production of goods or services or in the accomplishment of objectives, such as scientific investigation. Transportation could be described as the movement of humans, animals and goods from one location to another.
Innovation and transportation will always a huge impact on the world and “innovate or die” is a mantra that many follows. However, transformation isn’t easy or cheap, and many startups have learned that this is particularly true for developing autonomous systems and self-driving vehicles.
So, what is autonomous systems?
Let’s start by defining an autonomous vehicle, which also could be known as a driver-less car, robot car, self-driving car or autonomous vehicle. Automated vehicle means a motor vehicle designed and constructed to move autonomously for certain periods of time without continuous driver supervision but in respect of which driver intervention is still expected or required.
