Future cars may not have rear-view mirrors: use AI technology to Navigate

Self-driving cars have asked people to use artificial intelligence (AI) systems to control vehicles. Now, mitsubishi wants to throw away the rearview mirror from the past. Mitsubishi has announced that it has developed the industry's highest performance car camera technology. When the technology was installed on the vehicle, it could detect objects 100 metres away and increase the accuracy of the target detection from 14 per cent to 81 per cent.


Mitsubishi explained that its new camera USES its own Maisart AI, which can accurately distinguish pedestrians, cars and motorcycles. Eventually, the cameras will help prevent traffic accidents, such as traffic accidents that occur when drivers travel between lanes.


This is an early version of mitsubishi technology, which explains that it wants cameras to perform better on bad weather, nighttime and winding roads.
This is not the first time carmakers have tried to improve the car's "vision" capability. Last December, lockheed Martin, northrop grumman and NASA veteran Luis toussaint (Luis Dussan) set up AEye company of cooperation, hope to make a new sensor for automatic driving a car.


In addition to the camera technology, mitsubishi has proposed a new security system that can project symbols on the ground to inform other drivers and pedestrians about the driver's behavior.


In 2016, no rear-view mirror cars were approved for use in Japan and Europe, so mitsubishi had enough time to develop and test experimental cameras. Mitsubishi expects the Japanese market to appear without rear-view mirrors by 2019.


In addition to improving security through electronic eye arrays, removing rearview mirrors on cars makes them more aerodynamic and improves speed and fuel efficiency.

If the new model succeeds, other carmakers may soon follow the example of mitsubishi, accelerating the development of their own rear-view mirror.
