Understanding the future of artificial intelligence and autonomous vehicles for the Australian landscape

With recent advancements in artificial intelligence (AI) and autonomous vehicle technology significantly impacting the automotive industry in the past few years, Backplane Systems Technology has released a new whitepaper titled Computing around Artificial Intelligence and Autonomous Vehicles for the Road Transport Industry.

As businesses in the automotive industry become more accustomed to deploying autonomous technology as a way of improving safety and environmental sustainability, the paper discusses further potential uptake of the technology in the Australian environment as well as globally.

AI and autonomous technology has become particularly prevalent in the mining and long-haul truck sectors of the industry in Australia, where self-driving vehicles have been found to increase efficiency while reducing costs and reducing the occurrence of vehicle safety accidents.

However, as the Australian environment can be extremely rough and dusty, it is vital that manufacturers deliver systems that are resilient and can withstand strong vibrations and shock, extreme weather, and large amounts of dust, while still incorporating the high levels of technology required.

Backplane Systems Technology have developed a range of rugged embedded systems which they believe is ideal for the Australian environment and will become widely more common in the coming years as autonomous technology continues to advance, particularly in industrial transport applications where further advancements are expected.
