"Drive.ai uses detailed mapping, annotation and simulations
to further train and develop the
cars' self-driving 'brain,' improving the cars' ability to distinguish
other vehicles and pedestrians, as
well as driving environments and
scenarios, to safely and effectively navigate through the world,"
Halder explained. "Drive.ai's

area. Although the pilot has come
to a close they'll still focus on
mobility applications for the users
there," said Holcomb.
