Fully autonomous driving gets possible with modern technology based on artificial intelligence. The tool is a neuronal network called Long Short-Term Memory (LSTM) which makes decisions based on camera pictures, combined with “memories” from the past.
Fully autonomous driving will not be possible until the vehicle itself is able to recognize and estimate various driving situations and comes, based on artificial intelligence, to a decision on how to deal with these situations.
The most common technology is called Long Short-Term Memory (LSTM). LSTM is a neuronal network which can, for example, memorize selective parts of a sentence. Today, this technology is already used in mobile phones.
In the case of self-driving vehicles, LSTM should be able to make decisions based on camera pictures, combined with “memories” of driving situations from the past.
