Perceptive Automata Joins Renovo's AWare, Adding Human Behavior Prediction Software
Boston-based Perceptive Automata, a company working on human behavior prediction software for autonomous vehicles, has announced that it has joined the AWare ecosystem developed by Silicon Valley-based Renovo, a mobility software technology company developing a scalable operating system (OS) to manage autonomous vehicle fleets.
Perceptive Automata says it solved one of the most difficult problems for autonomous vehicles—understanding a pedestrian's often unpredictable behavior. For example, how would an autonomous car know that a pedestrian intends to yield to allow a car pass before they try and cross the street, or will this pedestrian expect a self-driving car to yield for them.
These are common scenarios a driverless car must contend with. The focus of Perceptive Automata is using AI-powered software to predict this type of pedestrian behavior—allowing a driverless car to navigate much more safely.
Perceptive Automata's artificial intelligence powered software gives automated vehicles the ability to anticipate what a person might do next, so they can navigate in road environments alongside pedestrians, cyclists, and other drivers.
Automated mobility fleet deployments using Renovo's AWare OS will gain access to Perceptive Automata's critically important algorithms to enable the safer deployment of automated vehicles and a smoother ride experience for passengers.
Perceptive Automata is working globally with OEMs, suppliers, and tech companies that are developing or integrating advanced driver assist systems (ADAS), as well as vehicles equipped with level 3 and 4 autonomous systems.
"We chose to integrate with the AWare OS platform because of Renovo's focus on deployment at scale and access to the growing number of fleets running AWare," said Sid Misra, CEO and Co-Founder of Perceptive Automata. "We share Renovo's vision of an ecosystem where best-in-class technologies seamlessly integrate to enable the safe large-scale deployment of automated mobility solutions that are suitable for the real world."
Renovo's AWare OS is the first operating system built specifically for automated mobility. The OS provides interfaces for self-driving software with an ecosystem of industry partners and technology to help speed development and deployment of autonomous fleets.
"Perceptive Automata is the leading developer of critically important human behavior prediction AI for automated vehicles, and we are delighted that they are now part of the AWare ecosystem," said Chris Heiser, CEO and Co-Founder of Renovo. "We enable our customers to develop and deploy fleets of fully automated vehicles that is made possible by an open ecosystem of best-in-class technologies like that of Perceptive Automata."
AWare-powered vehicles are robust enough command hundreds of sensors generating multiple terabytes of data on a secure scalable platform. The Aware OS utilizes a unique data fusion layer, to ensure a reliable flow of data from the vehicle's software and sensors to help train algorithms and optimize vehicle operations. Renovo OS is agnostic, so it works with a wide range of companies who are working to develop and deploy automated fleets at scale.
