Professors Building Self-Locating Autonomous Vehicles

Researchers at the NYU Tandon School of Engineering are developing a deep learning system that will allow self-driving cars to navigate, maneuver and respond to changing road conditions by mating data from onboard sensors to information on HERE HD Live Map, a cloud-based service for automated driving.

Self-driving cars could account for 21 million new vehicles sold every year by 2035. Over the next decade alone, such vehicles—and vehicles with assisted-driving technology—could deliver $1 trillion in societal and consumer benefits due to their improved safety.
