We need to predict each and every critical situation on the road and change the course of actions leading to danger. Our cars can help us in this. They can become more intelligent. Only if we let them dream.
See the videos below for an audio visual explanation of the Dreams4cars project. The first is an overview of what the project sets out to do. The second video is a comprehensive summary of the whole project, comparing the driving agent with the human brain, the composition of the driving agent and how it teaches itself through dreamlike simulations to cover as many driving possibilities as possible in the safe environment of a virtual simulator. The third video compares Dreams4cars with other autonomous driving projects to highlight its self-learning capability. The final video explains what the project achieved in terms of the control achieved on the test cars.
Dreams4Cars is about "The Driving Agent" - the complex system comprising of software and sensors that aims to take over the control of the automated vehicle. The project aims to enable the driving agent to deal with difficult and rare road circumstances.
