Autonomous Cars with Brain Technology

May 31, 2006

autonomous-brain-car.jpg University of Southern California researchers have been developing autonomous robotic cars that use navigation systems based on the inner workings of the human brain. The system is based off of cognitive fingerprints, in which the cars take "snapshots" of their settings to use in navigating unknown surroundings. These snapshots are stored in a circular/looped representation that is supposed to mimic the data combinations formed by a human brain, enabling the robotic cars to better explore urban terrain without getting lost. With all this research money being spent on "mimicking" the human brain, why don't scientists just implant an actual human brain into a car? It's not like the car will go crazy and trample pedestrians or cause fatal accidents and mass fires. Even if it does, instant movie deal. Guaranteed instant movie deal.
