Navigating the Road to Success: How Abstracting Maps for Self-Driving Cars Ensures Safe and Efficient Operation

Self-driving cars rely heavily on maps to navigate and make decisions while on the road. These maps must be accurate, detailed, and up-to-date in order for the car to operate safely and efficiently. However, as self-driving cars become more prevalent, it has become clear that the way maps are created and used needs to change.…

Why Overfitting Data is a Handicap for ADAS Deployment

ADAS enabled vehicles are most commonly driven on highways and main roads for a number of reasons. One reason is that these types of roads tend to have less complex driving scenarios compared to residential areas or side roads. Highways and main roads often have fewer intersections and more predictable traffic patterns, which can make…

Loose Coupling vs Tight Coupling; Best of Both Worlds

Loose coupling and tight coupling refer to the degree of interdependence between different components in a system. In software development, loose coupling refers to the design of components that can operate independently of one another and do not rely heavily on the internal details of other components. Tight coupling, on the other hand, refers to…

Camera Calibration: Tips and Techniques

Camera calibration is the process of determining the intrinsic and extrinsic parameters of a camera. Intrinsic parameters are properties of the camera itself, such as its focal length and principal point, while extrinsic parameters describe the position and orientation of the camera in the world. Accurate calibration is important for tasks such as 3D reconstruction,…
