Video: Yandex Drones Drove Through & Nbsp; Las Vegas 7000 & Nbsp; Kilometers Without & Nbsp; Drivers Behind The & Nbsp; Wheel
For the first time, unmanned vehicles from Yandex drove on the roads of Las Vegas in fully autonomous mode. Yandex became the first company to conduct tests on the roads of Nevada without a test engineer behind the wheel. During the preparation of the tests and during the consumer electronics exhibition CES-2020 (from January 5 to 10), the drones drove 7,000 kilometers on ordinary roads.
- For six days, Yandex hybrid drones based on ToyotPrius v traveled on public roads both during the day and at night, and their route, a little less than seven kilometers long, included multi-lane roads, regulated and unregulated intersections and pedestrian crossings.
- During the tests, the drones also served as taxis for visitors to the exhibition. They carried more than a hundred passengers, including Michigan Lieutenant Governor Garlin Gilchrist. In June, Yandex drones will carry visitors to the international auto show in Detroit - the Russian company has become one of the winners of the competition announced by the exhibition organizers for autonomous transportation.
At the end of 2019, Yandex began testing cameras and two types of lidars of its own design, which are half the price of foreign counterparts. These modules provide access to raw data that help algorithms fine-tune the autonomous control system.
