KAZAN, September 26. /TASS/. Serial assembly of the first Kamaz truck with artificial intelligence elements will be ready by 2017 year-end, President of Cognitive Technologies [system developer] Olga Uskova told TASS on Monday.
"We reached the release of pre-commercial version of the ADAS (Advanced Driver Assistance System) for Kamaz with artificial intelligence elements," Uskova said. "We plan to issue the completed ADAS version for Kamaz by the beginning of the next year. This will be a real pre-commercial prototype that can be raised to commercial production already by 2017 year-end," she added.
The case in point is the first tier ADAS, which will monitor driver’s adherence to requirements of road markings and traffic signs and warn about crossings and head-on obstacles. Uskova said. The system will be purely informative by nature, without direct influence on vehicle movement.
Kamaz is also developing a prototype with the second tier ADAS having the possibility of automatic braking in case of collision or moving away from the traffic lane, Kamaz’ general designer of innovative products Sergey Nazarenko said earlier.
