Nuclear research center might help self-driving cars “see” the road

Zenuity, a joint venture between Volvo Cars and Veoneer, announced that it is working with CERN to improve self-driving cars’ decision-making, thus enhancing safety.

The challenge in developing these vehicles lies in interpreting the vast data generated during normal driving, such as identifying other vehicles and pedestrians. CERN, known for its Large Hadron Collider, generates vast amounts of data that requires quick decision-making, which it achieves through Field-Programmable Gate Arrays (FPGAs).
