“Volkswagen owned German luxury carmaker Audi is showcasing, with the aid of a scale model how a car develops intelligent parking strategies, at the ongoing Conference and Workshop on Neural Information Processing Systems (NIPS) in Barcelona.
“A 1:8 scale model car – the “Audi Q2 deep learning concept” – is demonstrating an intelligent parking process. On an area measuring 3 x 3 meters, it autonomously searches for and finds a suitable parking space in the form of a metal frame, and then parks itself there. The Audi Q2 deep learning concept’s sensor technology consists of two mono cameras, facing forward and toward the rear, along with ten ultrasonic sensors positioned at points all around the model. A central on-board computer converts their data into control signals for steering and the electric motor. On the driving surface, the model car first determines its position relative to the parking space. As soon as it perceives the position, it calculates how it can safely drive to its targeted destination.
