Carnegie Mellon AHS group
The USDOT has terminated its relationship with the National Automated Highways Systems Consortium. These web pages will remain online to provide access to information on our past efforts.
The goal of the Automated Highway System is to develop the specifications for
vehicles and roadways that will provide fully autonomous computer controlled
driving to improve safety and throughput.
CMU has been developing autonomous driving since 1984, beginning with the
Terregator, up to the current series of Navlabs (6-10)
Here is a list (with pictures) of all the Navlabs (from 1
to 11), for those of us who get a little confused sometimes...
The 1997 NAHSC Technical
Feasibility Demo was August 7-10, 1997, in San Diego, California. CMU
demonstrated a number of technologies, including:
- Lane keeping and headway maintainance.
- Automated lane changing.
- Obstacle avoidance by both swerving and stopping.
- Simultaneous operation with heterogenous platforms, including buses.
