correspondent and baker. recipes for success. difference. thank. you. what happens if you watch the movie on a v r headset while speeding down the highway nothing bad if you leave the driving to artificial intelligence but i'll be ready to do that is it really safe autonomous driving our topic on today's ship. whenever i look at the car industry's prototypes i always get the us should jump right into this brave new world of innovation the latest development unveiled at

the recent consumer electronics show or c s in las vegas my personal favorite is the wii our headset that lets you play games in the car. and disney are collaborating on marvel heroes when the cast feeds up the space ship and the game does too. the virtual accountant takes cues from the cars movements for now it's only meant for passengers but in a tunnel mosca game most could try it on the driving seat what else that the c.s. have to offer. this is how many cities in visions the future all autonomous tried in the past and just sit together with nobody at the wheel different models could be used to carry cargo for instance. nissan has unveiled technology for self driving cars that can see around corners. it uses b.r. headset sensor data cameras and the nissan cloud. the system complaint

out free parking spots and even interesting sites along the way. german automotive supplier for center the robot taxi and that's the passenger on board or a captain at set off without the chauffeur and pick up more passengers on route. here's the latest feature is facial recognition yet the spirit side is adjusted to suit the passengers mood competition intelligence breeds emotions from their expressions. it's only a step away from adapting the driving style to suit their mood as well. and. it's going to take a little while before this technology becomes widely available we're still a long way from the self driving cars that lets us simply lays around on the back seat so far only prototypes have been built. but do you want to sound like you're

on top of developments here's a quick review of autonomy's driving sixty. levels zero no automation the driver does everything him or herself level one driver assistance systems like cruise control anti-lock brakes and a lane keeping assistant help the driver. level to partial automation the car corrects for lane drifting and keeps a safe distance from other cars using brake assists or collision warnings level three conditional automation the driver can let go of the steering wheel for a time and doesn't have to monitor the systems constantly but in certain situations he or she has to take control if the onboard computer requires it level for high automation the vehicle operates all systems automatically but the driver can take over if desired. level five full automation the car only needs to be started and have the destination entered human control of the steering and acceleration are
4:19 am
no longer needed. by the way cars from level one and two already available they help drivers keep within their lanes or hit the brakes if necessary autonomous driving isn't available everywhere it needs fast reliable data networks comic as we lie on systems like the new five g. cellular mobile standard or dependable by five this is because the sensors in autonomy as cars have to process huge quantities of data up to nine hundred terabytes an hour that translates into nineteen thousand gigabytes my phone's flat rate wouldn't get me wrong the next. so fos says driving cars are mostly restricted to test tricks but in chandler arizona things are different. in chandler arizona usa the future of driving has become reality. a selected number

of the town's residents can use some driving taxis to get around town or city drive only intervenes in emergencies and it's hoffman remembers his first taxi ride get in sit down and watch the steering wheel turn on its own and and you know a big grin on my face the entire time look at the same thing dry realize they're you're not driving the car the cars driving and that's just the coolest thing in the world and a big goofy grin my first all right way mul has now signed up a few hundred customers for the experiment the taxis booked by just this week the polish. and the fares are similar. but not everyone is happy with the idea of so pricing cars on track in the streets many people are and they are totally against self driving vehicles because what's going to end up happening is you're going to have a lot of individuals who are going to know how to physically drive the vehicle right now knowing how to operate the cars the drop of the same drive but in future
4:21 am
the car will be taking on all the functions itself. it will take a few years before cars hit the road without to drive us not only technology needs further development but also the laws need to be changed many legal issues are still open who is liable if a parking assistance system causes a fender bender the vehicle's make-a all is owner and whose fault is it if a self driving cars injure somebody is the drive always liable or can a machine take the blame. in many countries the driver is responsible this ruling is based on the vienna convention on roads traffic signed by over seventy countries it allows the transfer of driving tests to the vehicle provided that the technologies can be overridden or switched off by the driver so it seems self
4:22 am
driving cars are still not permitted the legal situation may be complex but so is the technology. we spoke to an expert on automated driving he works for one of germany's leading research institutes for road vehicles and we're lucky started automotive technology has been working on autonomous driving for years even trying it out on the institute's test track we ask him to explain in more detail how self driving cars work. the auto industry is working on prototypes that are able to recognize their surroundings the technology includes cameras radar and ultrasound sensors they tell the car where it is and who or what is in the vicinity. a radar system is installed behind this logo so it's not visible but the radar sense or can see through the logo. down here we see
4:23 am
a laser base. it registers the surroundings with one hundred eighty degree scan in front of the vehicle. another radar sensor is installed next to it that monitors the area up to two hundred meters away. hidden away here on the site is a camera system. able to detect the road markings. and other vehicles on the road. but many of the sensors have their weak points they only work optimally in good weather conditions. and he doesn't cameras and lead a census optical system. can in heavy rain big drops of water can be replaced. if you have mentioned like human eyes they can be compromised in front. that's why we need this mix of sensors cameras. all. the cars are
4:24 am
also equipped with extremely precise digital maps. the navigational data road markings and stoplights as well as the houses and trees are recorded on different levels keeping these maps up to date on accurate is crucial current user generated content is also used to create the best possible digital maps. well let's hope the onboard computer doesn't crash. but guess what our expert says is the biggest challenge in road traffic. i would say the human being is the most complicated element to drive. people don't always act logically and consistently and given circumstances studies have shown that both pedestrians and drivers in different countries react very differently and not everyone observes the rules of the road in an effort to gauge these unpredictable reactions better the researchers
4:25 am
speed different kinds of human behavior into their algorithms. we have very different patterns of behavior one might be very conservative another might be very athletic or very aggressive kind of these patterns can be recognized and you can use the algorithms of artificial intelligence to store them as models so the vehicle can recognise quite accurately if the driver ahead is a conservative or aggressive driver and adapt accordingly. drivers have always been accustomed to having control over the car and giving up that control can seem very strange and cause uncertainty so researchers analyzed human responses and tests to be a goals war on simulators. but in talk through an interaction between man and machine requires above all trust the driver has to be able to trust the system and
4:26 am
he can only trust it if he's informed by the system so the display an operating concept plays an essential role in other words how the machine shows the human its next steps. the car has to communicate with me and i have got to listen people's readiness to surrender control varies from country to country indian malaysian chinese drive us all the most willing. oddly enough drivers in the big come making nations would rather drive themselves with germany at the top of the list thirty one percent of those surveyed here say they would never willingly step into a self driving car skeptics are concerned about accidents caused by technical glitches losing control of their vehicles or hackers interfering henri's like this are not to be taken lightly autonomous vehicles need software updates and must communicate with their surroundings that opens the door to potential hackers and
4:27 am
fatal accidents involving said driving cars have already dampened the euphoria somewhat are we ready for driving in the future people in chandler wear way more is testing the self driving taxis have already attacked such vehicles several times with rocks and even knives people don't want to be guinea pigs in role traffic but what do you think are you looking forward to being chauffeured around and relaxing in autonomy. or do you have your doubts if yes why that is no john the discussion on facebook or its d.w. lockup. that was it for this edition of shift until next time by.
