Seattle Startup Autonomous Navigation Labs
- by Team
Autonomous, driverless cars have been developed for several years. But few companies are taking that technology as seriously as does Seattle startup Autonomous Navigation Labs.
What makes this type of car a real challenger is that it will be driving itself on the streets of Seattle.
The current prototype isn’t much but it’s an autonomous taxi or a passenger car in an autonomous bus, though it may not be a bus but is more likely a taxi, depending on the type of pilot project that the company is working on.
Here’s where things become tricky in terms of what happens if the autonomous car is pulled off the road and a car runs us over: Since this technology does not have the power to steer itself, it has no brakes to slow it down and it has no power steering.
So, what can the vehicle do? A lot. The system has a “drive in” mode, which keeps the car accelerating until it reaches a set speed. A “drive out” mode allows the car to park and return to its dock in any neighborhood.
If the driver’s control was switched off, the system would just drift around the city and its passengers.
If the driver is off, as it is in Seattle, the car will take care of itself: It’ll cruise up and down the streets, and the system has a built-in automatic collision avoidance system.
The car will need a large battery and some sensors, but in its early days it will rely on only wireless connections instead of wired connections – which is what’s used by the autonomous vehicle in the “Drive for Uber” concept to connect itself to a driverless taxi cab through the Wi-Fi radio, for instance.
“It’s really hard to get a taxi cab to be autonomous,” Seattle startup Autonomous Navigation Labs president Dan Leach admits. “But you can do it in that system.
Other companies are planning to develop autonomous vehicles with cars (such as a self-driving taxi or an autonomous taxi) but not cars. That will be a major breakthrough as it will be the first of these vehicles that can run on their own.
The Indy Autonomous Challenge Dallara AV-21
Dallara AV-21 is a concept autonomous car developed by Dallara Automotive Company Ltd. (DALLARA) with the aim of reducing road traffic injuries. The concept autonomous vehicle (AV) consists of a fully-autonomous front and rear wheel drive vehicle, with a fully-autonomous driving mode which is independent of any road traffic, and it is operated by a person.
Road traffic accidents and other safety problems caused by vehicles, pedestrians and vehicles are a major contributor to death and injury caused by the road system. The International Road Federation (IRF) aims to reduce these road traffic accidents by 2030. As a result, vehicles must be made less dangerous. In order to decrease the effects of accidents by reducing the number of casualties, the Road Safety Authority for Japan and the International Road Federation have joined forces to study autonomous vehicles and to seek suggestions from governments for developing the driving techniques and safety features of such vehicles.
The road system in Japan, the largest road system in Japan, is comprised of about 17 million km. The total number of cars on the road system is estimated at about 5 million. Road traffic accidents caused by cars on the road system are the number one cause for road traffic accidents. The number of fatalities and serious injuries caused by cars is 1. This number is estimated to increase up to 2. 1 million by 2020. Furthermore, the number of lives lost and serious injuries caused by vehicles is the highest in the world.
There is a great potential for the autonomous vehicle to significantly reduce the burden on society and the cost of driving by car accidents. However, the road systems of Japan has many obstacles and road traffic accidents will become rarer.
The DALLARA AV-21 is a concept autonomous vehicle designed to reduce road traffic injuries. The AV is developed along with a team of researchers, and it is intended to reduce the number of traffic accidents caused by cars and human drivers.
The autonomous vehicle uses a front wheel drive vehicle which is also an AV, to autonomously drive the vehicle. Each of the wheel drive vehicles can be driven independently from each other and the vehicle will stop autonomously at any place on the road system.
Gaia: An Industrial IoT Platform
G2Lab, one of the leading IoT platform and community in China, is developing a platform for industrial IoT integration at a global scale, which was reported on 1st June 2017 from Baidu as “G2Lab in the field of IoT”. The platform is based on cloud computing platform, and provides a unified and flexible approach for integrating IoT devices in the real world. The platform comprises of two main components: a real-time monitoring service, which has built-in AI and machine learning, as well as a security service, which provides high-level security services based on IoT security. G2Lab, along with other companies, including Shenzhen Rongzhi Blockchain Data Lab, Weihai AI Research Institute, and Xi’an Rongzhi Blockchain Data Lab, is in the process of introducing the platform to their industrial IoT infrastructure and will be applying it for real-time monitoring, security, and other functions.
The industrial IoT is driven by many factors. A lot of research has been conducted on it, from a single device to a distributed industrial ecosystem with more than 1000 IoT sensors. Nevertheless, most of them are based on the industrial data collected in the factory environment; few focus on the real world. When it comes to the real world, which should be applied for industrial IoT, the key elements are time and frequency, data type and quantity.

The Industrial IoT Platform is a solution to support the real-time monitoring and security functions of industrial IoT. The platform connects smart sensors and intelligent machines on the network.

The third stage of development of the next-generation vehicle, the AV-21, is the first to be made by the French company Dallara and is the third-generation of AV-11. It is scheduled for debut with the first flight of the French aerobatic aircraft on the 20th of March 2017.
The new design of the AV-21 is based on the same basic structure as the new design of the AV-11.
The development of this type of aircraft began in 2003. The first model named the AV-10 was released later on the 10th of August 2007. The aircraft was developed from the basic element of the wing of the MiG-21 and the new technology used to design this type of aircraft.
The first production version, known as the AV-11/2, was released on the 19th of March 2015.
The AV-21 is a single-seat aircraft, designed to be used not only for aerobatic display, but also for normal performance. The AV-21, and its derivatives, includes a wide variety of performance variants, including supersonic jets. This is particularly beneficial for advanced military missions, such as the reconnaissance and surveillance in the event of war in the skies. It will thus be able to perform the same tasks as the MiG-21, such as providing high-performance aerobatic display, for its own pilots, although with reduced performance and with a higher cost.
The new design of the AV-21 allows the production of the first AV-11 aircraft. The AV-7, designed with the same technology as the AV-11, is scheduled to be the second version of the aircraft, but does not see the light of day until its launch.
The new AV-21, which will be the third stage of development of the AV-11, is based on the same basic structure as the AV-11. It is also the second version of the AV-7. The design of the AV-21 makes it very different from its predecessors. It is designed to be used not only for aerobatic display, but also for normal performance.
