Russian Scientists Develop an Autopilot for Cars

Russian Scientists Develop an Autopilot for Cars
Volkswagen already owns a car autopilot system

The Skolkovo scientists developed a new autopiloting system for cars. The system, $2000 worth, will recognise obstructions, people, and receive the precise GPS data from GLONASS. 

      The tests of the new system will start in 2013, and autopilots are expected to be mass-produced as of 2015 or 2016. The RoboCV CEO claims that this system is in fact a micro-robot that can pilot a car without a human input. 

      A part of the autopilot system building project is also a plan to create a GLONASS-based navigation complex that can be used in overground and water transport. 

      RoboCV professionals consider their new product to be in direct competition with a similar system from Google. The Russian system, however, is a real value for money: not only is it cheaper, it can also be used on cars, water transport, UAVs, and autonomous planetary robots. 

      The RoboCV company, in operation since January 2012, has in April become a Skolkovo resident and in July received a 5mln grant to spend on scientific research, marketing, and business planing. 

      Other companies that possess autopilot systems are BMW, Ford, Cadillac, Volkswagen, and Volvo.
