1Lyft is now involved in the development of autonomous vehicles with 400 engineers. 2 Unlike the manufacture of driverless cars from scratch, the company is developing “virtual drivers” that use cameras, radar and lidar sensors. 3 So far, Lyft has integrated its driverless system into Ford Fusion and Chrysler Pacifica, both of which are being tested in Palo Alto, California.

On November 6th, according to foreign media reports, as the second largest online car service company in the United States, Lyft has helped subvert the taxi industry. Now, the company is working hard to avoid interference in the process of auto-driving cars from sci-fi to reality.

According to Taggart Matthiesen, vice president of products at the Lyft Autopilot Autonomous Group, the company has assigned about 400 engineers to two different autonomous driving programs.

One plan is the “open platform.” Lyft connects passengers to semi-autonomous vehicles developed by its partners, including Aptiv in Las Vegas and Waymo, an subsidiary of Chandler, Arizona.

The other is Lyft’s efforts to create its own autonomous driving system, and the company is working on the development of Level 5 automation technology, which is the mission of its secret laboratory in Palo Alto, California.

Martinson said: “We believe that the development of autonomous driving technology is not limited to a certain group or an organization. We think this is a good way to accelerate the overall progress of autonomous driving.”

Mathison said that so far, Lyft has integrated the technology into Ford’s Fusions and Chrysler Pacificas, and now it runs the cars in a research fleet, which is only accessible to Lyft employees in Palo Alto.

The company has a special permit there to test its self-driving cars with human safety drivers in a limited area. Taking a self-driving car to work is an added bonus for this job, but it is also a job requirement for some employees.

This experience is currently unique, but it may not last long. Sam Abuelsamid, chief research analyst at the mobile division of consulting firm Navigant Research, said: “For the average consumer, autonomous driving technology will be mainly obtained through the network car service.”

Abul Samid said that Lyft will face competition from peers such as Uber and competition from traditional car companies such as Ford and General Motors.

Avideh Zakhor, a professor of computer vision and artificial intelligence at the University of California at Berkeley, said that the network car company has a huge advantage over other autonomous driving companies, that is, it has been more multi-streaming media data.

Zachhol said: “It is always good to be on the street and be able to collect large amounts of data, because we all know that it is a lot of data that makes machine learning algorithms improved.”

Lyft has not yet revealed the exact number of passengers, but Jody Kelman, director of the Lyft Autopilot platform, said 96% of people who tried to use the Lyft app “unmanned” feature said they wanted to do it again.

For those who don’t want an autonomous driving experience, Kelman and Mathisen say they can use the Lyft app to choose between manual driving or other means of transportation.
