The platform is currently in prototype, with three unique risk features -- automatic honking, advanced risky behavior identification and labeling, and marking of high-risk physical areas – to be incorporated into Borgward production cars within three years. Borgward will also make its platform available to other OEMs, in a long-term effort to create a global industry standard in safety testing for all autonomous cars.
"No autonomous automaker has been able to deliver a safe and reliable product. This is in part because the industry's reliance on real road testing cannot generate enough data to predict human error or other risks at a rate sufficient enough to ensure a reliable response," said Dr. Zhou (Joe) Xing, Director of AI for autonomous driving, Borgward Group. "Our AI platform aims to solve this problem, not just for Borgward's products, but for the AD industry so that all communities can benefit from safe self-driving cars."
