According to the company, driverless road vehicles are guided by control software that converts sensed data into steering and power commands. Because a moving vehicle poses potential danger to people and property, safety must be ensured before the control software can be used in most real-world environments.
"It is the cost and difficulty of guaranteeing safety that has prevented autonomous vehicles from being used as much as we would hope and expect," said
To address this problem, Energid reported that its method is to apply autonomy algorithms to simulated vehicles in a way that actively seeks out problems. The approach combines randomized dynamic simulation with optimization for finding algorithmic failures. By finding safety problems early at reduced cost, autonomous convoys will be fielded sooner.
"Energid's software will find those one-in-a-million events that rarely happen but have serious consequences when they do," said
Energid Technologies develops robotic systems and products for the aerospace, agriculture, transportation, defense, and medical industries.
