Increasing road safety with self-driving vehicles
Car accidents resulting in human error are a major concern due to their high frequency. One way to improve road safety is to develop and implement autonomous vehicles that use smart technologies. One of the main difficulties in the production of autonomous vehicles is the creation of embeddable software that can use vehicle sensors to detect and analyse the surrounding environment and plan the safest movement for the vehicle. Embotech is the supplier of a novelty software for autonomous cars with an advanced Embotech motion planner (EMP) that has already proven itself in tests. The EU-funded EMP project aims to test the software in autonomous cars with the help of several automotive industries and enter the market as independent suppliers.
