FiveAI to compete with Google, Tesla in driverless car sector

The startup’s concept is different from Google and Tesla as FiveAI’s project would have a vehicle fitted out with sensors all processed by a central computer capable of “machine learning”, that is, capability of picking up information from encounters and applying it to future situations.  “It uses sensors to perceive what is out there, identifying things like road, pavement, street signs, pedestrians and other cars,” Forbes quoted Steve Allpress, chief technology officer at FiveAI, as saying. “It builds up a probablisitic picture of what is likely to happen that can see how our own actions and (others’) actions will influence possible options in order to then plan the safest route,” Allpress said.
