A group of Oxford scientists are proving their car can navigate without the Internet’s help , a system that could accelerate the early adoption of autonomy in cars.
It’s probably of little surprise that the scientists behind the Mars Rover approached designing an autonomous vehicle without the imperative of having it communicate with the Internet.
And so boffins from the ‘dreaming spires’ of Oxford in the UK have devised a system that can allow any vehicle to navigate its way through the tiny, higgledy-piggledy streets and lanes of the ancient seat of learning completely free from the shackles of connectivity.
