Changing Lanes: Algorithm Helps AI Drive More Like HumansNews
For self-driving cars, algorithms for changing lanes are beset by one of two problems. Either, they rely on detailed statistical models of the driving environment, which are too complex to analyze on the fly; or they’re so simple that they can lead to impractically conservative decisions, such as never changing lanes at all. Now a new algorithm hopes to split the difference, allowing aggressive lane changes than the simple models do but relies only on immediate information about other vehicles’ directions and velocities to make decisions.
