Honda, Google talk pos­si­ble part­ner­ship

China Daily (Hong Kong) - - MOTORING -

Honda Mo­tor is in talks with Google to in­stall the tech com­pany’s self-driv­ing sys­tems in the au­tomaker’s ve­hi­cles. Honda says col­lab­o­ra­tion with the Google unit, called Waymo, would al­low re­searchers to learn about the in­te­gra­tion of sen­sors, soft­ware and com­put­ers. The au­tomaker says that if a deal is reached, it will pro­vide ve­hi­cles to Waymo that are mod­i­fied to han­dle the tech­nol­ogy. The Honda cars would join Waymo’s fleet, which al­ready in­cludes Lexus SUVs and Chrysler Paci­fica mini­vans. tion with an in­dus­try-lead­ing per­cep­tion sys­tem and com­put­ing plat­form. Ac­cord­ing to Del­phi, the sys­tem will be ready for pro­duc­tion by 2019, with tech­nolo­gies in­clud­ing pre­cise map­ping with­out GPS con­nec­tiv­ity, 3-D ve­hi­cle de­tec­tion, path plan­ning and free space de­tec­tion.

Teams from both com­pa­nies will con­tinue to develop the next gen­er­a­tion of sensor fu­sion tech­nol­ogy as well as the next gen­er­a­tion hu­man­like “driv­ing pol­icy”.
