Technique to automatically discover simulation configurations for behaviors hard to test

The research team at National Institute of Informatics developed a technique to search automatically for simulation configurations that test various behaviors of automated driving systems. This research was conducted under ERATO-MMSD project. The proposed technique iterates trials on simulations using an optimization method called evolutionary computation so that it discovers simulation configurations that lead to specific features of driving behaviors such as high acceleration, deceleration, and steering operation. This research was presented in ICST 2021. Credit: © National Institute of Informatics

Student team challenged to create and test fully autonomous car

UNIVERSITY PARK, Pa. — In the near future, a General Motors car will be driven autonomously on a test track, navigating potential obstacles like cones, road signs and pedestrian simulations, with its self-driving abilities completely designed by Penn State students. 

It will be the culmination of years-long work completed by members of the Penn State Advanced Vehicle Team (AVT) at Penn State, who were selected to participate in the AutoDrive Challenge II.

“The plan is to develop some new technology that may not be out there already,” said Zach Kerr, a junior majoring in mechanical engineering and current Penn

BMW Touts Solid-State Car Battery By 2030, Test Vehicle By 2025

We’ve said it all plenty of times before, and we’ll say it again and again. Cars are hard. EVs are arguably harder, at least initially. And, perhaps most importantly, new successful battery tech is incredibly difficult, especially when we’re talking about solid-state batteries.

For years, many companies have been talking about “battery breakthroughs.” However, nothing has really broken through, and timelines continue to be delayed. This it not to say that updated battery cell chemistries haven’t advanced battery safety, capacity, energy density, and, most importantly in the EV world, range and performance. Prices have come down as well.

With that
